By Cheryl Aymond 

Newsweek chose her as one 
of the "most outstanding 
people of 1976." The 1978 
World Almanac lists her as

copies in the United States 
alone. The Hite Report on 
Male Sexuality, published in 
1981, has been continuously 
on the New York Times 
Bestseller list for over two 

Shere Hite (pronounced 
'Share) is a rare combination 
of both vulnarability and 
toughness. She is a feminist ... 
that's with no buts' thank you. 
She feels feminism means she 
must try to make the world a 
better place for women, and 
thus for men. too. 

Ms. Hite is a frequent 
speaker at Universities, 
medical schools, and benefits 
for women's organizations. 
She lectures once a year for the 

World Congress of Sexolgy.

Student Recruiting Group Formed 

Recruitment at Nor- 
thwestern will be getting a 
boost in the coming weeks 
with the advent of a new 
student organization, Student 

The group is made of 22 
students, whose academic 
talents and extra-curricular 
interests represent all phases 
of University life. The primary 
purpose of Student Am- 
bassadors is recruitment of 
high school students. The 
group will also serve as student 
hosts at various NSU events. 

Officers for the 1983-84 
academic year, chosen last 
Wednesday, are President, 
John "J.J." Williams; Vice-

Cammie McClary, Kenneth 
Mosely, Stan Powell, Craig

They were aided in the group's 
organizations by Admission 
Counselors Mary Ackel, 
Randy Pierce, and Vicki 

Members of the group will 
visit high schools around the 
state, aiding NSU recruiters. 

In addition, the group will add 
a "personal touch", by 
writing letters to prospective 
students interested in Nor- 
thwestern. Each member will 
contact individuals with 
his/her major or from the 
same hometown. 

Student Ambassadores core 
members were chosen, ac- 
cording to Sherri Waggoner, 
on the basis of leadership 
ability, personality, career 
interests, and an expressed 
interest in recruiting prior to 
the formation of the group. 

President J.J. Williams is 
"excited about the upcoming 
year. We have a great group, 
and I think we can really help 
with NSU's recruiting.

next semester, Student

State-wide politics are definitely big-time business, 
especially in a state that is infamous for its political escapades 
and happenings. 

I had always known that (because of its hierarchy) the 
governer's race was more serious than that of a local of- 
fice. What I did not know, however, was all of the little things 
and big things, too, that go towards making a gubernatorial 
campaign successful. All this does not make it easier for me to 
decide for whom to cast my votes in the next few weeks. 

Like, for instance, this past weekend I had an opportunity 
to attend a cocktail party-fundraiser for Democratic 
gubernatorial hopeful Edwin Edwards. Now believe me, on a 
college student budget, which allowd for almost zero "extra 
expenses" there's no way I could have forked out the 1000 
dollars to open the door to the Hilton Grand Balroom In New 
Orleans Friday night. Fortunately, my friend was employed 
at Edwards' Statewide Campaign Headquarters in Baton 
Rouge this summer and she, like the other employees and 
volunteers at the office, got to attend the affair free of 
charge. Since she didn't want to go alone... 

So we walked into the ballroom after a lady at the door 
checked our names off a list. At both ends of the room were 
two bars (four in all) serving anything for which our hearts 
desired. Two gigantic tables held an assortment of 
cheeses, crunchy veggies, and crackers. Two other tables were 
for the main courses -these cute little pieces of ham or roast 
beef (freshly carved) between cute little biscuits. 

All in all, it was a most impressive evening, highlighted of 
course by the presence of Edwin Edwards himself. Naturally 
he's going to be around if over 2000 people are there who 
have paid serious dollars to crunch celery and drink gin and 
tonics. And 1 mean there were over 2000 folks there; many 
ladies with more diamonds on one finger than fingers and 
toes combined. It was the perfect place for the fashion 
conscious to see the latest in fashionable attire (and also the 
strangest). There was this one dress that had more slits in it 
than sequins to cover it. 

Prior to our trip to New Orleans, we stopped by the 
campaign headquarters so that my friend could pick up some 
Edwards publicity for Northwestern's chapter of Young 
Democrats. This is the place that has all the bumper stickers, 
buttons, posters, pamphlets, etc, that we have been seeing 
lately. Not only that, but Edwards hangs out there in his 
office. Just to give you an idea of how much money has been 
spent on the campaign, each one of those "Edwards. ..Now" 
bumper stickers cost 50 cents. And how many have you seen 

Not only are the expenses for such materials high, but so 
are the other expenses necessary to keep the campaign run- 
ning. What is so amazing (to me) is that most of the 30 to 40 
people who work at the headquarters do not get paychecks 
and put in full-time days strictly on a volunteer basis. Of 
course they are bound to reap benefits should there be a 
successful election. 

Seeing this side of a campaign has made me more aware of 
the tremendous expense involved in running for a state office. 
It has not, however, helped me decide which way to go. May 
the best man (or the fattest pocketbook) win. Lisa Williams

Human Sexuality Author 
Really Worth Listening To 

In continuing its long- 
standing tradition of bringing 
us tup-flight members of the 
American public, the NSU 
Distingiushed Lecture Series 
will give us Shere Hite, the 
much renowned, and often 
controversial author of some 
of the leading books on 
human sexuality. 

Hiie will speak on the NSU 
campus, Wednesday Sep- 
lember 28 at II :00 a.m. in the 
brand spankin' new Fine Arts 

As in the past, all Nor- 
thwestern classes scheduled 
for thai hour will be 
dismissed. All too often, we 
have used that cancellation, 
not so much to hear our 
distinguished speaker, as to do 
something else. I, of course, 
stand guilty too. 

But really, Dr. Tommy 
Whitehead and his crew have 
done their durndest to bring in 
top-flite speakers, and after 
all, we helped to pay the 
speakers way here with our 
registration fees, and we really 
should siart attending some of 
these talks. If nothing else, 
you can bet your sweet biffy's 

[hat Hite won't be boring, she 
can certainly enlighten us on 
some things we didn't know. 

In 1976, Hite published The 
Hite Report: A Nationwide 
Study of Female Sexuality, 
which sold over two million 
copies in the United States 

In 1981, she came out with 
her follow up The Hite Report 
of Male Sexuality that has 
been continiuosly on the New 
York Times Bestseller list for 
the past two years. 

Hite has spoken frequently 
on college campuses and other 
places, and she lectures once a 
year for the World Congress 
of Sexology. 

She's a feminist who really 
knows her stuff, and she puts 
it across in such a way, that 
her lectures are a must for 
college students. 

I really urge you to get out 
and listen to Hite, and for that 
matter, all of the other 
distinguished lecturers that 
Dr. Whitehead brings to our 
tie support and made it to 
some of the speeches. 

That means you too 

...For those of you who did 
not realize it, statewide 
elections and the State Fair 
football game are on the same 
day, October 22. If you're not 
registered to vote, then by all 
means, register. If you are 
registered to vote, get it on 
down to the courthouse of the 
parish that you are registered 
in and cast those all-important 
absentee ballots for the 
candidate of your choice, if 
you plan on being in 
Shreveport the day of the 

...One final word, for those 
of you who can't seem to find 
that much to after a long hard 
day of studying, go by the 
Intramural office in the old 
Men's Gym and pick up a 
schedule of events. Tootie 
Cary and her assistants will be 
glad to help you out. 

Our Intramural program 
has long been recognized as 
one of the besi in the state, if 
not the entire South, so 
become a part of the campus 
intramural society and sign up 
for something real soon.

Tulsa's Staurovsky Kicks 
Demons 26-19 

Jason Siaurovsky kicked 
lour field goals and Tulsa 
added a pair of touchdowns to 
offset yet another sterling 
performance by the Nor- 
thwestern defense in leading 
the Hurricanes to a 26-19 
victory over the Demons 
Saturday night . 

Staurovsky was a paltry two 
of live in [lie field goal kicking 
department coming into the 
game, but connected on tries 
of 55, 44, 47, and 39 on the 

The game started out with 
Tulsa stopping the Demons on 
three successive downs and 
forcing NSU to punt. The real 
blow for the Demons came on 
the third play of that initial 
series when senior uuarterback 
Sum Powell was racked up 
alter a gain of four yards and 
suffered a seperalcd shoulder 
thai would eventually force 
him to miss the rest of the 
game and keep him out of next 
week's game at Abilene 

Tulsa look the Demons punt 
and drove 56 yards in only 
seven plays to go ahead 7-0. 

The Demons came back and 
Powell tried one play at the 
quarterback slot before the 
pain became unbearable and 
had to leave the game. 
Sophomore quarterback 
Wayne Van took over, but 
couldn't move the Demons on 
his initial series. 

The Demon defense look 
hold anil forced a Tulsa punl 
alter only three plays from 
scrimmage. Willi Van at the 
helm, the Demons marched 

down to the Tulsa 19 yard line 
before a holding penalty, a 
sack, and an Albert Myers 
interception of a Van pass 
slopped t hat drive. 

The Demon defense held 
though and forced Siaurovsky 
to come in and boom a 55- 
yarder lo give Tulsa a 10-0 lad. 

On the first play afer the 
Tulsa kicko.1T, running back 
Kenny Mosley ran off with a 
46 yard pass to put Nor- 
thwestern in position on the 
Tulsa 34. A few plays later 
Robert Shaw caught a 
touchdown pass to pull NSU 
lo within lour at 10-6. 

After a Tulsa punt, van 
threw his second interception

enough for Staurovsky to kick 
another field goal and give 
them a 23-13 lead.

Rich Little He Ain't But 
Then Again, Who Is He? 

Natchitoches has hit the big 
time. The good guys at Sports 
Illustrated, long recognized as 
the leading authorities in the 
world of sports journalism, have 
finally recognized our beloved 
town in their magazine. 

For those of you who don't 
know, for the past several 
weeks, Natchitoches has 
sporadically been in and out of 
Sports Illustrated, The Sporting 
News, the Atlanta Constitution, 
and countless other newspapers 
and sports magazines from coast 
to coast. Why, you ask?Because 
one Arthur Lee Trotter, alias 
Marv Fleming, alias Bill Russel, 
alias John Mackey, etc., chose 
Northwestern's hometown to try 
another one of his con games. It 
didn't work. 

The FBI rap sheet on Trotter 
lists 23 arrests since 1954, mostly 
for fraud, forgery and im- 
personation. So, when Trotter 
sashayed into Natchitoches, he 
did what he does best, he took 
on the identity of someone other 
than himself, this time, Bill 
Russell, the ex-Boston Celtic 
great, who, coincendentally 
WAS in Natchitoches several 
years ago as one of Nor- 
thwestern's Distinguished 

It apparently slipped Trotter's 
mind, at least temporarily, that 
he was a little short to be cast 
into the role of the 6'11" 
Russell. Eight inches short to be 

Trotter tried to sell a local 
woman a $2,500 share in a 
Restaraunt chain while Nat- 
chitoches' finest were listening 
in the next room. The woman 
questioned Trotter and part of 
their conversation went like this: 

Woman: You don't look like 
Bill Russel." 

Trotter: "I got into a car 

accident and had to have plastic 

Woman: "I was expecting 
someone much taller." 

Trotter: "I had 10 inches of 
bone surgically removed from 
my shins. I wanted to fit easier 
into my Mercedes. And I was 
tired of having my legs hang off 
motel beds." 

Police arrested Trotter on the 
spot, and at the courthouse, 
Trotter-Russel became Marv 
Fleming. Trotter-Fleming came 
to the courthouse prepared 
however. He had a driver's 
license, insurance policies, and 
personal checks in the name of 
Marv Fleming. He also let local 
police in on the real reason that 
Vince Lombardi was a better 
coach than Don Sula. 

Nachitoches Police checked 
Trotter-Fleming out by calling 
the number of the real Marv 
Fleming, who is now an actor, 
with a one-line speaking part in 
"Heaven Can Wait", saying, 
"Hey, Mr. Farnsworth, did you 
ever play college football?" 

Fleming of course can't 
understand how ANYONE can 
mistake the REAL him for 

"I mean, I'm handsome," 
Fleming says", "I've heard this 
Trotter is pig-ugly." 

Trotter was arrested three 
years ago for impersonating 
Fleming after he was caught 
impersonating John Mackey, 
one of the NFL's all-time great 
tight ends. 

At a July press conference in 
Natchitoches, shortly after his 
arrest, Trotter agreed to talk. 
But when the cameras shown on 
him, he did his Helen Keller 
imitation, and said nothing. 

"Are you Mav Fleming who 
played for the Packers and the 
Dolphins?", came the first 


"I'll take the Fifth Amend- 
ment", he said. 

"Are you Arthur Lee 
Trotter " 

"I'll take the Fifth Amend- 

"What's the Fifth Amend- 
ment?" he was asked, after 
several more volleys with the 
same return. 

"I don't want to tall. _jout 

"That's pretty close, Marv," 
Natchitoches Police office Larry 
Vaughn said. 

Trotter-Fleming-Russel -Ma- 
ckey now calls Cell 6-B, in the 
Natchitoches Jail home and he 
explains why everybody else is 
wrong about him. 

He says Arthur Lee Trotter is 
still another alias, that he really 
does sometimes go by Bill Russel 
because, "My foster father's 
name was William Russel" and 
"Bill Russel and I grew up in the 
same neighborhood." But he 
insists that his real name is Marv 
Xavier Fleming, sometimes 
conveniently confused with 
Marv Lawrence Fleming, who 
once played pro football . 

He still insists that he played 
tight end in the Canadien 
Football League for five years. 

Which team? 

"Heli, heh," he says, flashing 
a wide grin with lots of crooked 
teeth, "Ain't no way you can gel 
me to tell you THAT!" 

And of course, what of the 
shin surgery? 

"They were supposed to take 
eight inches out of just one leg, 
but it looked stupid having one 
side of me 6'11" and the other 
6'3". So they sawed off part of 
my left shin to make my legs 

I'm so glad he cleared that 
up. -Joe Cunningham 

The Sigma Kappa-Kingpins 
team captured first place in the 
Intramural co-ed softball 
tourney held early last week. 
They deieated Phi Mu-Kappa 
Sigma two games to one to 
clinch the title. 

Third place went to Un 
Kappa Fifth-Yang who 
avenged an earlier loss to 
Omega Psi Phi-Too Tough, 
and then had to forfeit to Phi 
Mu-Kappa Sigma when they 
lost the Un Kappa Fifth half 
of the team to Lady Demon 
basketball practice. 

Sigma Kappa-Kingpins 
defeated Phi Mu-Kappa Sigma 
in the deciding game of the 
tournament on an RBI single 
by leadoff man Larry 
Hataway in the top of the sixth 
to give them a 4-3 win. 
Hataway went four for four in 
the final game. 

Sigma Kappa-Kingpins 
advanced through the tour- 
nament with relative ease 
behind the bat of Hataway. 
He was four for four with four 
runs in a 17-3 win over the 
Flintstones, and was among 
those scoring twice in the 8-2 
win over the Blind Boys. 

Phi Mu-Kappa Sigma rolled 
over Theta Chi-Litllc Sisters 
20-4 behind Mike Camden's 
four hits and four runs scored. 

Russel Bicnvenu led the next 
victory with a sixth inning 
game winning RBI and scored 
an insurance run in a 12-10 
thriller over Omega Psi Phi- 
Too Tough. Bicnvenu w:is 
three for three with three runs 

Demons Field Jayvee Squad 

For the first time in the last 
several years, Northwestern 
will field a junior varsity 
football team, and Demon 
head coach Sam Goodwin has 
scheduled at least two games 
for his jayvee troops. 

The Demons had a game 
scheduled last night against 
the LSU Jayvee squad at 
Turpin Staduium, but the 
Baby Bengals cancelled plans 
for that one. 

The first scheduled game 
will now be in Lafayette 

against the USL Ragin' 
Cajuns on September 26, 
starting at 5:00 p.m. 

The junior Demons will play 
again at Bunkie High School 
against Nicholls State starting 
at 7:00 p.m. 

Goodwin says, "The main 
reason we are playing some 
junior varsity games is the 
experience factor. There a-e 
several spots where kids that 
aren't playing ibis year will 
have to step in next year and 
play. In these junior varsity 

games they can get some 

The two games will both be 
played on Monday nights and 
the coaches for the Demons 
will likely be the graduate 
assistants from the football 
staff. Goodwin noted, "We 
will be going through our 
regular Monday practice with 
the rest of the squad," lie 
added, "The junior varsity 
games should be a good ex- 
perience for everyone in- 
vc lived." 


Un Kappa Fifth und Yang 
claimed third spot in spite of 
losing their first game 5-2 and 
playing with only eight 
players, and having to forfeit 
out of the tourney because of 
the basketball practice. 

Un Kappa Fifth-Yang came 
back to defeat Tau Kappa 
Epsilon and their little sisters 
in the first round of the loser's 
bracket 4-3, behind the pit- 
ching of Teressa Thomas and 
Jamie Pridgeon's two-out 
bottom of the sixth single that 
scored Jim Oliver from third 
base. Oliver had two hits and 
half of the team's runs. 

UK5th-Yang then avenged 
the earlier loss to Omega Psi 
Phi-Too Tough, this time with 
the services of all 10 players, 
by recording a 6-4 victory, 
behind Joe Bienvenu's game- 
winning RBI and i'im Paulk's 
and Steve Roe's iwo runs 

In the first game of ti e three 
between Sigma K.ippa- 
Kingpins and Phi Mu-K.ippa 
Sigma, the the former beat the 
latter 7-1, in spite of Mike 
Brown's three hits. 

In the second game, aflei 
Phi Mu-Kappa Sigma had 
advanced past the forfeiting 
UK5lh-Yang team. Brown 
knocked in the winning run in 
a 5-3 victory. Camden added a 
solo home run to seal the win. 

Hataway then delivered the 
final game dramatics to give

Demons Drop To 1 - 7; 
Lose To Tech 21 - 10 

The Northwestern Demons 
fell to the Louisiana Tech 
Bulldogs by a heartbreaking 
score of 21 to 10 in the annual 
State Fair Classic matchup in 
Shreveport this weekend. The 
loss drops the hapless Demons 
to 1 - 7 on the season. 

NSU jumped out to a 10- 
point lead in the first half of 
Saturday night's game, but 
fell victim to a floundering 
offense in the second half 
while the Bulldogs rolled up 21 
unansered points. 

The Demons' first score 
came on a 10-yard pass from 
Stan Powell to Chuck Dupree, 
capping an 1 1 -play, 43-yard 

The Demons scored again 

late in the second.quarter on a 
45-yard field goal by Benny 
Brouillette to bring the score 
to 10-0. 

But after the half, Sam 
Goodwin's Demons couldn't 
get it going again. 

The momentum shifted 
about midway in the third 
quater when A.L. Williams' 
Bulldogs scored two quick 

The Demons will have a 
week off before traveling to 
Nicholls State for the final 
road game of the season. NSU 
will play its last two games of 
the season at home against

Bridleless-Saddleless Team To Compete In Texas 

Northwestern's bridleless- 
saddleless equestrian team will 
be featured this week at the 
Sate Fair of Texas All-Arabian 
Horse Show in Dallas. 

The 12-member NSU equine 
unit, one of the few in the 
United States, is scheduled to 
perform its quadrille routines 
six times during the horse 
show, which begins Thursday, 
Oct. 20, and continues 
through Sunday, Oct. 23. 

Formed in the fall of 1980 as 
a method of teaching students 
to ride without using a bridle 

or saddle, the NSU bndleless- 
saddleless equestrian team is 
recognized nationally for its 
dressage movements which 
showcase the superior abilities 
of the riders who use only their 
legs and weight as aids instead 
of reins. 

The NSU bridleless- 
saddleless equestrian team was 
featured in 1981 at the 15th 
annual U.S. National 
Championship Arabian and 
Half-Arabian Horse Show in 
Albuquerque, N.M. 

The unit from the NSU 

Department of Agriculture 
and Animal Science's equine 
science program has also been 
featured at all-Arabian horse 
shows at the Louisiana State 
Fairgrounds in Shreveport as 
well as in Baton Rouge and 
Nacogdoches, Tex. 

In November, the NSU 
bridleless-saddleless equestri- 
an team will be featured at the 
Equestifest in Covington. 

Jim Blacken, a senior 
equine science major from 
Webster, N.Y., coaches the 
equestrian unit. The team's 

advisor is Kathy Baer, director 
of equine science at NSU. 

Team members are Mike 
VanDamia, junior, agri- 
business, Erie, Pa.; Janet 
Wilde, senior, accounting, 
Campti; Ashby Lippitt, 
sophomore, agri-business. 
Panama City, Fla.; Jill

Reagan Not A Iways 

The tragedy in Beirut has both united and divided America. 
We are united in our anger, yet it seems always divided in our 
resolutions. Some say "Pull out", others say "We must 

•President Reagan has said we will stay. Some may 
disagree, but at least he has a foreign policy that can be 
considered consistant, at least in this case. In other foreign 
matters, his is an uneven mass of contradictions. 

Reagan is proud of his consistent blasts at the Soviets over 
their human rights violations, and he is correct. Yet, he 
remains silent about the human rights abuses by such 
countries as Chile, the Phillipines, El Salvador, South 
Africa, and even Israel. The people speak out in Chile, and 
the opposition is arrested by the Government. People cry for 
free elections in the Phillipines while Marcos threatens to 
execute those who oppose him. Blacks continue to suffer 
under the racist rule ol South Africa. In Central America, 
righi-wing death squads kill labor leaders, Church officials, 
and those who speak out with views contrary to their beliefs. 
Israel, though a democratic nation, looks down on its Arab 
citizens. Popularly elected officals are removed from office 
for supporting or appearing to support views of the PLO. As 
a democracy, Israel must protect the dissenting voice. As for 
the others, a communist dicta'orship and a capitalist dic- 
tatorship is still a dictatorship. 

More inconsistancy exists is Central America. The U.S. 
condemns the government of Nicaragua for its support of the 
rebels in El Salvador, yet the United States supports the rebels 
attempting to overthrow the government of Nicaragua. If it 
is wrong for a government to work to overthrow a neighbor, 
then it is wrong for any govenment to work to topple a 
government, be that country Nicaragua, Russia, Syria, or the 

In Lebanon, we are working to preserve the freely elected 
government of Lebanon (some forget that the Lebanese 
government was elected) and to prevent anarchy and 
bloodshed. Over 190 American dead is a horror, but at least 
the sacrifice was for the hope and belief in Peace. Peace must 
always stand up to terror. At least Reagan has not been 
wishy-washy about Lebanon. That's a beginning. Eric

Letter to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

Argus had planned to have a 
photo contest this fall. Due to 
circumstances beyond our 
control it must wait until 

The condition of the photo 
lab is causing the delay. A year 
ago the University had spent 
ihe money to fix up the photo 



Joe Cunningham 

I've got a big question that 1 
sure would like to have an- 
swered. In the past two and 
one half years we have had 
alot of radicals who have 
offered the opinion thai 
something needs to be done 
about the content of the 
paper. Yet, when it comes time 
to write a story or make up an 
editorial, these armchair 
journalists take to the closets 
not surfacing again until the) 
can think up some other gripe 
about the paper. 

As you can probably tell. 
I'm in a bad mood. It's closing 
in on midnight here at the 
Natchitoches Times, and once 
again it befalls three of us to 
write nearly a whole paper. 
Hey, it's my job and I get paid 
for it. I do know that, but 
every once in a great while you 
either run out of opinions, or 
have ones that are better left 
unsaid, and then you have a 
gaping hole in your paper that 
you don't know what to do 

Like tonight, these first two 
paragraphs have spent alot of 
time saying nothing. They are 
really here for decoration 
because I really don't have 
anything to say ex.cept-help. 
We need your help here at the 
Current Sauce. 

We're trying to give you a 
half decent paper, but it would 
be a little more decent if it just 
wasn't the expressed opinions 
of a few, but instead, the 
opinions of many. 

What ever happened to the 
Dave LaVere's of yesteryear, 
who could smell a rat in a 
garbage dump? If there was 
something radical to be said, 
you could bet your Aunt 
Lillian's falsies that LaVere 
would say it. 

We need some good 
radicalism here. This waking 
up in the morning, going to 
school (occaisionally), and 
going back home is dull. Let's 
spice it up, come on you closet 
radicals, get out the barb- 
point pens and jot someting 
down. Make school interesting 
again. Let's have some fun. 

in Kyser. This year, now that 
photography is part of the art 
department, they decide to 
move it to the Fine Arts 
building. The new facility in 
the new building has proven to 
be unsuitable. 

The new photo lab is still 
not ready for our use. The 

plumbers have not corrected 
any of the problems over 

I feel if the University is 
going to offer a degree 
program in photography they 
should at least offer the 
facilites for us to work in.

Phi Beta Sigmas Lead Fraternities Un Kappa 5th 

Flies Towards 

Phi Beta Sigma 
strengthened their hold on 
first place while Theta Chi 
struggled and Kappa Sigma 
ran up the score in men's 
fraternity action in I-M flag 

Theta Chi, starting the week 
in a tie for first place barely 
got past a fiesty Sig Tau team 
34-33 in spite of Major Fred 
Teresa's four touchdown 
passes. Donald Bihm pulled 
off some heroics in his own 
rite for Sig Tau by throwing 
throwing for three touch- 
downs and running for two 
more, one a 45-yard run, and 
one for 58 yards. 

Theta Chi then played 
Kappa Alpha and saw their 
unblemished record suddenly 
blemish as the A's won 47-14. 
Greg Stracner had six 
touchdown passes for KA. 
Meanwhile, KA II fell to 
Omega Psi Phi by a 34-6 count 
as Albert Sibley threw for 
three touchdowns and Bartel 
James picked off a pair of 

In the battle of the Sig 
Dogs, the Sig's No. 1 downed 
the No. 2 team by a 63-6 count. 
There was too much scoring to 
list it all here. 

Theta Chi bounced back on 
the winning track by whipping 
TKE 42-6 as Teresa again 

provided the big plays with 
five touchdown passes and 
Scott Berger and Danny Kratz 
each came up with an in- 
terception. Phi Beta Sigma 
downed Omega Psi Phi 12-6 
on Randy Evans eight yard 

run in the second half and then 
Kappa Sig I smeared Omega 
Psi Phi 52-12 as Russel 
Bienvenu returned his third 
interception of the year for a 
touchdown and Mike Brown 
added 16 points. 

Steelers, Yang 1000 
Only Unbeaten Teams 

And then there were two. 
Yang 1000, behind Rodney 
Thrash 's three interceptions, 
held off Yang I 6-0 in a 
defensive struggle involving 
two of the men's independent 
division's three unbeaten 

It was scoreless all the way 
until a Thrash interception set 
up the Yang 1000 team with a 
first and goal on the 20. On 
fourth and 10, Kevin Warner 
threw a TD pass to Bubba 
Patterson for the win. 

Before that, Yang 1000 had 
defeated the Budmen 26-12 
after falling behind 12-0 at the 
half. The independent 
division's other undefeated 
team, the Steelers, pasted the 
Rapides Knights 41-12 behind 
two interceptions by Terrance 
Leonard and Walter 
Pinkston's 25 points. 

The Budmen put it to the 
Kingpins 41-12 as Bob Waddel 
threw for three touchdown 
passes and picked off two 
Mark Thigpen aerials. 

The Kingpins dropped 
further in the loss column by 
virtue of a 20-14 defeat at the 
hands of the Blind Boys. 
Eddie Thomas threw for two 
TD's and ran for another in 
the win. 

Yang I salvaged their week 
with a 28-7 win over Trimless. 
Joe Bienvenu threw for three 
touchdowns and Chris Moran 
and Bryan Childers led a 
defense that picked off four 

Yang II edged closer to the 
playoffs by virtue of a 33-12 
win over the Blind boys. David 
Baiiey scored three touch- 
downs for the Yangsters.

Looking Back, Looking Ahead 

...It's coming to the close of 
another extremely successf ul I- 
M flag football season, and 
it's probably past time to give 
sonic of the credit in this fine 
program where it is obviously 

I suppose you have noticed 
that there is an expanded 
coverage of the flag football 
games this year complete with 
stats, standings, and more 
copy (journalism lingo for 
story space.) 

All of Ihis wouldn't be 
possible without the hard 
work of Tootie Carv. Nor- 
tjWestcrn's 1-M director and 
her very capable assistants. 

This year. Tootle had a new 
score sheet drawn up and her 
officials were required to learn 
how to use it. Quite simply, 
Ihcy had to keep track of who 
threw what to whom, when, 
and for how far. They also 
kepi up with interceptions in 
addition to the tasks ihcy 
normally have to do. 

It's been complicated, and 

at times, hard work, but the I- 
M workers haven't com- 
plained and they have been 
resonsible for the expanded 
coverage and the individual 
statistics charts that you see in 
the Sauce. Without them, you 
would probably still be 
reading "Demon 

...Well, another State Fair 
has come and gone," and in 
spite of the loss that the 
Demons took, I think that 
there were more than a few 
bright spots in Shreveport this 
weekend. First, the defense 
has made a name lor itself this 
year, like possibly no other 
Northwestern defense has in a 
long time. Granted, it's going 
to be lough replacing the likes 
of Clary Reasons, Edward 
Orgeron, and Tim l.edet, to 
name a few, but with people 
like Arthur Berry, Corris 
Boyd, and Farry Robinson 
coming back, NSU should be 
in good shape for the next 

(Halfway through with this 
article, all right!) 

1 know Fve said it before, 

and I promise to keep saying it 
again, but I think that this 
year the Northwestern Fady 
Demon basktball team, could 
be the one we have been 
waiting for, after the past 
several years of near greatness. 

Under the leadership of 
coaches Pat Pierson and 
James Smith, the Fady 
Demons have become a 
recognized Southern power in 
women's basketball, so much 
so, they now have become a 
prime choice for teams 
looking for good competition 
for their tournaments. 

I think with the maturation 
of all the players from last 
year, and the excellence of the 
fresh crop o r rookies, the 
Fady Demons just may suprise 
a loi of people this year and 
heal the mess out of the highly 
touted Fousisiana Tech Fady 

Houston Baptist 
Early Favorite In 
TAAC Cross Country 

Houston Baptist returns 
three runners who earned all- 
conference honors a year ago, 
and that seems to make the 
Huskies the favorite to repeat 
as team champion here 
Saturday at the Trans America 
Conference cross country 

HBFI won the event last year 
by a 16-point margin over 
Centenary, and those two 
teams figure to be at the top 
again this time around. The 
race will start at 9:00 am on 
Saturday on the NSU campus. 
The starting gate will be near 
Turpin Stadium on the NSU 
campus and the race will 
conclude on the NSU track 

All ten teams in the TAAC 
will compete. 

Fast year Houston Baptist 

scored 25 points to win, while 
Centenary was second with 41 
points. Samford placed distant 
third and the Demons were 
fourth. This time around HBU 
returns three of its top four 
runners from a year ago, 
including Charles Forman, 
who placed second in the meet 
last year. 

For Northwestern, Andy 
Nelson placed seventh a year 

Although the league 
championships will again be 
held at the NSU campus, the 
course will cover 10,000 
different meters than a year 
ago. Earlier this year, on the 
same course, HBU won the 
NSU Invitational placing 
ahead of other TAAC teams

Critic Rex Reed Set To Lecture On Thursday 

By Cheryl Aymond 

For those of you who aren't 
sure— Rex Reed is a man some 
of you will adore and many 
more of you will despise. He's 
been described as the "hazel- 
eyed hatchet man" with a pen 
that "seems to have the 
proportions of an ax handle." 
Reed is a film critic and he 
holds nothing back in his 
published interviews. If you're 
insincere, boorish, or 
brainless, you can bet that is 
what the people will read. 
Needless to say he's made his 
share of enemies and that fact 
bothers him little. 

His background is southern. 
He was born in Texas, the son 
of an oil company supervisor. 
He graduated from Nat- 
chitoches High School in 1956 
and later earned a degree from 
Louisiana State University. 

Most noted as a film critic 
for the NEW YORK POST, he 
is also a monthly columnist for 
TERLY magazine. Besides 
that, he lectures, he acts, he 
writes, (DO YOU SLEEP IN 
THE NUDE?), and has hosted 
his own nationally syndicated 
television show. In his spare 
time he eats: hamburgers, 
steak with ketchup, and lots of 
Dr. Pepper. (By the way he 
hates breakfast foods and liver 
with onions). 

Nursing Facility 60% Complete 


Construction of the 
Northwestern State University 
Nursing Education Center at 
1800 Line Avenue in 
shreveport is more than 60 
Percent complete, according to 
•he October status report 
released by Walker & Walker 
Architects-Engineers, the 
»rchitects for the $6.45 million 

According to the report, the

closed with brick, and elec- 
trical and plumbing work is 
under way in the building's 

The new academic- 
administrative building has 
been designed to include a 
library, learning resource 
center, nursing laboratory 
equipped with 20 beds for 
simulated patient care, 
assessment laboratory, six 
classrooms, four conference 
rooms, 62 clinical evaluation 
rooms and a registrar's office. 

Construction has also begun 
on a second-floor walkway 
which will connect the 
academic-administrative bui- 
lding with the old Line 
Avenue School, which is being 
renovated and restored to 
offer the College of Nursing 
eight additional classrooms. 

With an anticipated 

completion date of early 1985, 
the new Nursing Education 
Center will bring NSU's three 
nursing degree programs 
together on the same site for 
the first time. 

Currently, the associate 
degree in nursing program is 
located at the Louisiana State 
University Medical Center on 
East Kings Highway in 
Shreveport, and the bac- 
calaureate degree and the 
graduate and research 
programs are located at 1800 
Warrington Place in 

The relocation of all the 
College of Nursing programs 
at one site will make possible 
positive changes in class 
scheduling flexibility, in- 
structional capabilities for 
faculty, assisted and self- 
learning resource use by 
students and communication 
within the College of Nursing 
and with the university. 

On himself Reed states, "I'm 
so undisciplined it's a miracle 1 
ever get anything done. I'm a 
slow writer. I hate deadlines. 
All my writing is done at 
night, usually after mid- 
night." His best interviews are 
with people he has never met 
before and will never see 
again. The hardest are "when 
it's somebody you like. 
Valentines are the hardest 
things in the world to write." 

About those non-valentines. 
Rex Reed is noted for his un- 
censored interviews with such 
people as Warren Beatty, 
Barbra Streisand and reviews 
on the likes of Nancy Sinatra, 
Bette Davis, and Carol 
Burnett. When asked if he 
minds his reputation as the 
nation's sharpest hatchet man 
his response was, "In four out 
of five pieces I bend over 
backwards to be nice to the 

subject. But life just isn't 
apple pie and Mother's Day 
seven days a week, and if 
you're going to write 
something that isn't going to 
be thrown out with the coffee 
grounds, you have to tell it like 
it is. Look I'm a very people- 
oriented person. I just love 
people. But if some jackass is 
going to pick his nose, I'm 
going to write it." 

It's the opinion of [his 
writer that Nori hwestern 
could use a new, fresh, and 
somewhat radical outlook on 
life and people. Rex Reed is a 
promising lecturer and is sure 
lo be a bountiful heap of 
entertainment for us all. He 
will be on NSU's campus 
Thursday, November 3rd al 
9:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome 
and please, bring a friend-— if 
you can take the heal.

What does it take to get 
a good job these days? A good education is a 
necessity. Experience certainly helps. Intel- 
ligence. A willingness to learn. Ambition to 
get to the top. The ability to get along with 
people. And energy, because without energy 
there just wouldn't be any jobs to fill. In order 
to supply that energy, electric companies must 
take advantage of the most up-to-date tech- 
nology, build facilities as efficient as possible 
and make full use of every available energy 
source including nuclear power and coal. 
Energy. You need it to get a job.

"I Love It" Says New Infirmary Nurse Jo Hargis 

ley Whifc 

The infirmary has a new 
addition. Mrs. Jo Hargis is 
the new nurse here at NSU. 

Mrs. Hargis is married to 
Don Hargis, and is a resident 
of Natchitoches. 

After completing her 
training at the Charity 
Hospital in New Orleans, Mrs. 
Hargis did a lot of work in 
Natchitoches. She worked for 
the Natchitoches Parish 
Health Unit for 13 years, and 

for the Natchitoches Parish 
Hospital for 8 years. She also 
commuted from Natchitoches 
to Many for 2 years to open 
the Louisiana Family Planning 
Clinic there. 

Among the ailments Mrs. 
Hargis treats are colds, sore 
throats, skinned knees and 
alllergy shots. She said, "I 
can only treat with over the 
counter medicines." These 
services are free to students 
who have paid their infirmary 

"If I feel a student needs to 
see a doctor, I refer them to 
Dr. Thomas," said Mrs. 
Hargis. This fee is covered by 

student insurance. 

Mrs. Hargis is presently 
taking continuing education 

classes here at NSU. 

When asked how she likes 
her work, Mrs. Hargis replied, 
"I love it."

The Current Sauce, Tuesday NOvember 1,1983 

Last week's invasion of the Marxist-led island of Grenada 
brought to my mind many contrasting thoughts. 

Now I do not like violence. I would walk out of my way 
just to avoid a disturbace like that. But more than I dislike 
warfare I love my country and believe strongly in democracy 
and freedom of the body and spirit. 

This is why I support the United States giving aid to the 
multinational troop of nations that responded to Grenada's 
obviously helpless plight. 

It is our duty as human beings to help our fellow man if his 
rights are being infringed upon; especially if he asks us for 

Naturally our "duty" was not the main thing in mind last 
week when we invaded Grenada --there were more close-to- 
home, nationalistic reasons also. 

One of the major concerns of the United States was the 
large number of United States citizens living in the island 
country. In addition to vacationing and residing senior 
citizens, there also were a number of American students 
enrolled in medical school in the city of St. George's . Of 
course when these Americans were not allowed to return 
home during the terrorists' reign^ their mother country got a 
little bit concerned, and rightly so. 

On a much larger scale, however, is America's fear that the 
influence of nearby Cuba will expand, and, along with it, 

The uardest decision of all is to make that first initial 

Do I get involved, or do I just sit back, protect my own 
territory and hope to goodness that everyone else has the 
sense to do the same? 

Indeed, the harsh choices faced by a country's leader are by 
no means cut and dry in a situation like this. 

If the United States remains neutral we can possibily reap 
the benefits of neutrality --no one will jump on our cases. On 
the other hand, we may not get help when we need it. 
Yes, I wholeheartedly agree that we should have aided 
Grenada in reestablishing peace and safety for its citizens. 
Still, I sometimes wonder and falter in my beliefs when I see a 
photograph of flag-draped coffins bearing the bodies of 
American soldiers whose lives were lost in the struggle. 

Already the signs of normality are showing in Grenada as 
one by one shopkeepers reopen their places of business. 
Happenings in the streets become more commonplace and 
natural, as if nothing had happened at all. 

What I didn't know was how long we planned to stay in 
Grenada. I was not aware that an embassy was in the 
blueprints. We should do our parts to calm things down, but 
get out and let the citizens finish the reorganization process. 

Extolling our power and might by aiding this country or 
that country will gain some respect for the United States 
(provided our efforts succeed) — but only to a certain degree. 
What determines this degree of respect is when and where we 
decide enough is enough. 

Do we stay or do we go? Now that we are here, do we go or 
do we stay? If we stay, for how long? 

It's simple, isn't it?Lisa Williams

Taking A Look At Our Shortcomings 




Sports Editor 

Layout Editor 






USPS No. 140-660 

Sometime last week, an 
anonymous (until recently) 
person left the cartoon shown 
below on the door of my office 
in the Student Union. I really 
don't think, no matter how 
hard they might try, that 
anyone could better pen a 
more appropriate cartoon on 
life in the Current Sauce sports 

Everyone one of us should 
take time to look at ourselves, 
smile at our shortcomings, and 
accept things for the way that 
they are. No amount of 
crying, pleading, or begging 
will change something that has 
already been done. 

This afternoon, we received 
a five page letter from Dr. 
Fraser Snowden that will be 
printed in the Sauce next week 
after undergoing a little 

In his opening line, Dr. 
Snowden wrote that his letter 
consisted of one gripe and two 
constructive suggestions. The 
gripe was that "the Current 
Sauce is an embarrassment to 
Northwestern." The two 
"mutually exclusive" 
suggestions were that the 
Sauce "Make a concerted 
effort to recruit a responsible 
staff and start reporting 
what's happening on this 
campus and in the community 
at large," or "Discontinue 
publication of the Sauce 
altogether. Junk it!" 

As you will probably read 
next week, Dr. Snowden goes 
on to give suggestions about 
what the Sauce can write 
about etc, etc. 

In his last paragraph, Dr. 
Snowden writes "If students, 
faculty, and anyone else in- 
terested in the Sauce can't or 
won't pitch in and contribute 
some ideas, stories, opinion 
pieces, and letters to the 
editor, then a funeral for the 
Sauce should be one of our 
centennial events." 

I would like to take this time 
to respond, tactfully, and 
mindful of our own short- 
comings (see Paragraph two). 

First, let me say that we 
appreciate the suggestions 
about improving the Sauce. 
Almost all of the ones that Dr. 
Snowden mentioned have been 
mentioned between members 
of the Sauce staff. (Three of us 
at last count.) 

I would like to inform Dr. 
Snowden that every effort has 
been made to recruit a 
responsible staff. However, by 
law, we are not allowed to go 
out and chain people and 
make them become staff 
reporters. For some reason, 
people just don't want to write 

for the Sauce. 

Dr. Snowden himself seems 
to at least partially recognize 
this fact when he writes that 
"students, faculty, and 
anyone else... contribute some 
ideas, stories, opinion pieces, 
and letters to the editor.." 

We have asked students, 
faculty, state representatives, 
mayors, etc., for con- 
tributions. All have said yes, 
but as of tonight, none has 
succeeded in actually con- 
tributing one. And it is not 
just this year, but for the past 
two and a half yea*rs. 

We could go on and on, 
rebutting most things that Dr. 
Snowden said. But the fact is, 
we agree with his suggestions. 
The problem, quite frankly, 
does not lie with the Current 
Saue staff. As I have stated 
before in this space, we are 
business majors trying to do a 
journalism majors job. 

The problem is with our 
journalism department, or the 
lack thereof. Where is our 
journalism department? 
Where are the conscientous 
journalism majors who want 
to write on the Sauce? We 
would love to have REAL, 
TRAINED, writers on this 

It's not just the journalism 
department, although the 
impetus to work on the Sauce 
must start there, but the 
students themselves. And we 
are not just asking for j- 
majors, we'll take anyone. 

There is beginning to be a 
little input from the jour- 
nalism department. For the 

first time, we are seeing j- 
majors required to come down 
to Natchitoches Times building 
on Monday afternoons and 
watch the Sauce being pasted 
up. But it will take time before 
they can start writing. 

The people that are on the 
Current Sauce staff now are 
on it because they want to see 
the students of NSU have a 
paper. They are not here for 
their careers. How many 
stories are you going to write 
working behind the desk of 
IBM? You can send us 
suggestions fifteen times a 
day, seven days a week, but 
without the personnel, we will 
never be able to improve on 
the paper the way that you 
seem to want it. It is beyond 
our means. 

However, the people here 
on the staff are not quitters 
either. They took the jobs 
because nobody else wanted 

Thank you Dr. Snowden, 
for the genuine interest you 
showed in the Sauce. I really 
mean it. Your letter, although 
not the being most com- 
plimentary of the Sauce at 
times, still showed concern. 
Maybe next time, instead of a 
letter to the editor, you could 
put your writing talents to use 
with an opinion piece on some 
of the issues you suggested. 

I hope that others out there 
will take the cue from you and 
start contributing to the 
Sauce. Remember, it is a job, 
and you will be paid for it 
should you decide to work.—. 
Joe Cunningham.

The Current Sauce, Tuesday November 1,1983 



Current Sauce 

Intramural Playoffs 
Today and Tomorrow 
On I-M Fields At 4:30 

Christian Students Down Sigma Kappa 

Go Thunderducks! 

(Editor's Note)--The 
following article has been 
"lifted" from Athlon's 1983 
Football Guide. This is not an 
original story. 

You say your favorite 
college team has lost 30 
straight? You say the best 
player has left to join a 
monastery and the guy from 
the NCAA's Bureau of In- 
vestigations has called a press 
conference for 10:00 
tomorrow morning? 
• Take heart. 

At least you don't have to 
root for the Thunderducks. 

Or the Zips. 

Or the Moles. 

Or (heaven forbid) the 
Fighting Artichokes. 

And those are just a few of 
the weird, outrageous, 
nonsensical and sometimes 
inexplicable nicknames that 
make college athletics 
so. ..well, so different. 

But the real challenge of 
college athletics is to be able to 
get behind a team with a 
nickname that makes ab- 
solutely no sense. 

Take the Thunderducks. 


They're the Richmond 
College Thunderducks from 
Dallas, Texas, to be exact and 
their namesake was a feisty 
wrestler know as "Duck." 
Nobody is quite sure what 
sound a Thunderduck makes, 
but it can't be good. 

The University of Akron 
actually is named after a pair 
of (how embarrassing) slip- 
pers.. .The idea was sent in by 
an Akron coed years ago. She 
thought it would be nice to 
name teams after her slippers, 
known also as "Zippers." 
Thus, Akron became the Zips. 

Students at Nazareth 
College in Kalamazoo, 
Michigan, chose the nickname 
Moles because all the buildings 
on campus are connected by 
tunnels. And we thought the 
species was limited to officials. 

Perhaps the crudest 
nickname belongs to the Grays 
Harbor College Chokers in 
Aberdeen, Washington. 
Understand that a choker is 
the guy at lumber camps who 
puts a clamp on a log so that it 

can be loaded on a truck. And 
since Grays Harbor is in the 
heart of timber country, well, 
you get the idea. 

Of course, the mascot none 
of us should have any trouble 
understanding is the one at 
Scottsdale (Arizona) Com- 
munity College. The disciples 
of higher learning there ap- 
proved the choice of the 
ferocious, brave, and 
universally feared artichoke 
after it was picked in a student 
contest in the early 1970's. Say 
what you want about it, it is a 
nickname with a heart. 

Honorably mentioned in 
college athletics' theater of the 
bizarre are the Cal-Irvine 
Anteaters (inspired by the 
anteater in the comic strip 
"B.C."), the Heidleberg 
(Ohio) Student Princes, and 
the Missouri-Kansas City 
Fighting Kangaroos, an 
animal quite indigenous to the 
Kansas City area. Right. 

Of course, not all schools 
have the vision to follow the 
way of the artichoke, zip, 
mole, or anteater. Some name 
their athletic teams after 
famous men of local lore. 

The Stetson Hatters of 
DeLand, Florida, aren't 
named on a whim. They're 
called the Hatters in honor of 
the founder of the hat com- 
pany, John B. Stetson, who 
bailed out the school when it 
was up to its brim in red ink- 
And then there's Marist 
College in Poughkeepsie, 
N.Y., the only school named 
after a comedian. They're the 
Red Foxes. 

The Southern Illinois 
Salukis are named after a 
breed of dog with relatives 
dating back to ancient Greece. 
Since the southern region of 
Illinois is sometimes known as 
"Little Egypt," it fits. 
Western Carolina goes by 
"Catamounts," a catamount 
being a wildcat. St. Louis 
University is the Billikens-- 
"the god of things as they 
should be." 

And even if things aren't as 
they should be, take heart. 

Compared to having to root 
for the Thunderducks, losing 
30 straight isn't that bad. 

It took four overtimes, the 
last two played in almost total 
darkness, but Christian 
Students finally overcame 
Sigma Kappa 25-19 in first 
round action of the I-M flag 
football playoffs. 

It couldn't have been a more 
even game. Christian Students 
scored 13 first half points, six 
on a Jacquetta Navarre three- 
yard run and 55-yard 
touchdown pass to Susan 

However, Sigma Kappa 
came right back and scored 13 
second half points to tie the 
game. Ghlee Woodworth ran 
in two yards and Jenny 
Johnson intercepted a pass 
and ran twenty five yards to 
score Sigma Kappa's two 

second half touchdowns. 

That put the game in 
overtime. Johnson ran it in 
from 15 yards out on Sigma 
Kappa's first possession, but 
CS answered that with a Cindy 
Wigley score from 15-yards 
out also. 

The second and third 
overtimes were scoreless, and 

then Jacquetta Navarre ran in 
from five-yards out in the 
darkness for the win. 

The win sends the Christian 
Students to the women's 
division Super Bowl to play 
the winner of the Un Kappa 
5th versus Phi Mu game which 
will be played today at 4:30. 

Kappa Alpha Advances To 
Flag Football Playoffs 

Greg Stracner hit Mike 
Prudhomme with a 10-yard 
touchdown pass on the first 
play of overtime, and Kappa 
Alpha's defense held Phi Beta 

Yang Downs Yang II 25-0 

Tony Beckermeyer scored 
two second half touchdowns, 
Joe Bienvenu fired two TD 
passes and intercepted two 
more, and Wayne Lupo 
picked off his 7th, 8th, and 9th 
passes of the year as Yang #1 
outlasted Yang #2 25-0 in first 
round flag football action. 

Bienvenu started the scoring 
hitting Donny Harrison with a 
6-yard pass five minutes into 
the game. Bienvenu made it 
12-0 on his second touchdown 

pass ot the day with 1:00 left 
in the half. 

The second half belonged to 
Beckermeyer and Lupo as 
Tony scored his two TD's and 
Lupo intercepted two of his 
three passes. 

With the win, Yang moves 
on to face the winner of the 
game between Yang 1000 and 
the Steelers. The winner of 
that game will represent the 
independent division in the 
flag football Super Bowl. 

Sigma, to give KA a 19-12 first 
round victory in the flag 
football men's fraternity 
divsion playoffs. 

KA scored first in the game 
on the first of Stracner's two 
touchdown passes to 
Prudhomme. Phi Beta Sigma 
came right back with a Vadar 
Carr to Roland Carr pass to 
make it 6-6 at halftime. 

In the second half, Phi Beta 
scored first on a Vadar Carr to 
Randy Evans pass, but KA 
answered that with a 60-yard 
jaunt by Stracner. 

The win moves Kappa 
Alpha into the fraternity 
division championship game 
against the winner of the 
Kappa Sigma versus Theta Chi

Kappa Sig, K.A., Phi Beta Sigma, 
Theta Chi All Make I-M Playoffs 

Kappa Sigma took first 
place in the men's fraternity 
flag football division by 
downing Kappa Alpha 26-13. 
Randy Bonnette's 1-yard pass 
to Dane McLamore put the 
Sig's out front to stay. 

In other games, Phi Beta 
Sigma assured themselves of a 
playoff spot by defeating Sig 
Tau 19-6. Donald Bihm put 
Sig Tau out front in the first 
half on a 7-yard run, but three 
Vadar Carr touchdown passes 
guided Phi Beta to the win. 

K.A. won their other game 
of the week, also against a 
Kappa Sigma team, this one 
the No. 2 group, 40-7. Mike 
Prudhomme scored three 
touchdowns for K.A. Dru 
Cunningham scored all of 
Kappa Sigma's points. 

Kappa Sig No. 1 whipped 
Omega Psi Phi 56-8 as Mike 
Brown scored 20-points. 

Omega Psi Phi knocked off 
Theta Chi 15-7, but the margin 
of victory came on a safety by 
a swarming Omega Psi Phi 
defense. However, Theta Chi 
clinched a playoff spot by 
downing Phi Beta Sigma 20-7 
as Major Fred Teresa threw 
for three touchdown passes. 
Rodney Blake picked off three 
passes for Phi Beta Sigma.

Un Kappa 5th Takes First 
Sigma Kappa, Christian 
Students, Phi Mu Make It 

Un Kappa 5th, Sigma 
Kappa, Christian Students, 
and Phi Mu became the four 
playoff entries as Intramural 
Flag Football ended this past 

Un Kappa 5th "finished the 
season atop the women's 
division with a 7-1 record after 
a season-ending victory over 
PhiMu 19-12. 

Phi Mu had taken a 12-7 
lead midway through the final 
half on Angela Lasyone's 20- 
yard interception return, but 
UK5th scored twice on runs by 
Stephany Washington and 
Cindy Berry for the win. 

Sigma Kappa finished the 
season with a 5-3 worksheet, 
good enough for second place, 
after defeating Tri-Sigma 18-0 
and Christian Students 13-6. 

Jenny Johnson scored twice 
in both games for the Sigma 
Kappa's. Ghlee Woodworth 
passed for three touchdowns 
in the two games also. 

The Christian Students 
ended the season tied with Phi 
Mu with 4-4 records, good 
enough for third place but 
won out on the points system. 

Phi Mu ended the season 
winning its final two games.

guard did not see any 
unauthorized individuals enter 
the building and there were no 
signs of forced entry to the

time, another student was 
allegedly attacked in her room 
in Louisiana dorm. The senior 
staled that she was jumped 
from behind as she entered her 
room and that a towel was 
placed over her head. Ac- 
cording to her, she was choked 
by the towel, which later left 
burn marks on her neck, and 
her attacked lied when her 
struggle awakened her 
roommate. The student im- 
mediatedly notified University 

Police Chief Lee staled that 
the police believe the incident 
to be a "Halloween prank." 

Dean of Students Dr. Fred

When asked about his 

involvement he replied, '1 
know it was a mistake. I had 
three weeks left in my Senior 
football season. It's a hard 
thing for me to deal with. The 
lesson that I learned that night 
will follow me for the rest of 
my life.'

remain anonymous, Leonard 
was stopped for a traffic 
violation at 2 A.M. Sunday,

amount of marijuana and a 

number of pills was found. 
The pills were later identified 

as Dia/.cpan, the generic name

Leonard's arrest on the

ADMISSION: $1 0.00 PRE SALE $1 2.00 AT DOOR 




by: Rhonda Byers 

With Natchitoches's oldest 
tradition, the Christmas 
Festival, a new tradition is 
being established: bed and 
breakfast. This idea, which is 
rapidly catching on in the 
U.S., has nestled into the old 
world charm of Louisiana's 
oldest setttlement west of the 

The idea of the Fleur-de-Lis 
Bed and Breakfast Inn has 
been brought to Natchitoches 
by Mr. and Mrs. H.J. Froeba, 
most recently of Marthaville. 
Mr. Froeba is a salesman for 
Levi Strauss Co. and Mrs. 
Froeba travels throughout 
Natchitoches Parish as a 
special educator of the blind 
and partially sighted. 
Recently, the couple attended 
a bed and breakfast seminar in 
Napa Valley, California, and 
have used their talents to 
establish good ole southern 
hospitality in Natchitoches. 
An old house built in 1904, 
which could have easily 
become another eyesore for 
the city, has been transformed 
into a charming haven, 
housing several ideally fur- 
nished rooms. 

Located at 336 Second 
Street, the Fleur-de-Lis should 
prove to be the epitome of 
warmth and country living in 
the city. Mr. and Mrs. Froeba 
have tastefully decorated the 
Fleur-de-Lis with a collection 
of 19th and 20th century 
decor. Each bedroom (there 

are five) is decorated dif- 
ferently in color scheme and 
furnishing. Along with king- 
size beds are private baths, a 
sitting area, and that oh-so- 
important vanity for the lady. 
These rooms are plush yet 
cozy, from the antique 
bedspreads to the decorative 
prints adorning the walls. 

Downstairs, the foyer, 
living room, and dining room 
reflect an air of comfortable 
surroundings. Family por- 
traits, homemade afghans, a 
color television, a picnic-type 
dining table immediately make 
any visitor feel at home. 
There is history in many 
pieces, which Mrs. Froeba will 
happily explain. 

The talents of two local 

craftsmen have been enlisted 
for the Fleur-de-Lis. Mr. 
George Olivier handcrafted 
many of the furnishings, 
including one of the bedroom 
suites, the lovely dining table, 
and chairs, all made of 
cypress. Charles Sabin, a 
student at Northwestern, hand 
engraved the fleur-de-lis that 
adorn the front doors. 

For any visitors to Nat- 
chitoches, the Fleur-de-Lis is a 
home away from home. Rates 
are $55.00 double occupancy, 
$45.00 single. These rates 
include a plantation breakfast 
accompanied by stimulating 
conversation provided by the 
host and hostess. Reser- 
vations are recommended, and 
can be made at 352-6621 .

were recorded within the 
Natchitoches city limits alone. 

Officer James Donaho, 
program director, has stated 
that for the next two years, 
"we are going to try to make 
people... take the split-second 
action that will prevent 
needless tragedies: buckle 
their seat belt." Since cars, 
homes, and other possessions 
are replaceable, but the life of 
a loved one is not, the idea is a 
good one. Although most cars 
are equipped with safety belts, 
most people don't think far 
enough ahead to use them 
while in a moving vehicle. 

Depending on the success of 
the program in Natchitoches, 
other safety belt programs will 
be adopted across the state 
and nation to increase traffic 
safety. When observed 
wearing the belts, one becomes 
eligible for weekly and 
monthly prizes. All winners 
will be eligible for a grand 
prize drawing next year.

found that it is important to 
me to help when they need it. 
Being an RA here is in-

Ammi added that, although 
sometimes it is a little noisy, 
dorm life gives the students the 
opportunity t,o become 
responsible and disciplined at 
a younger age. 

Naturally, students 
sometimes experience 
homesickness. However, 
when the weekend comes and 
they can go home, the illness

Prudhomme, is majoring in

Center For Computer Literacy To Open At NSU 

Louisiana's first Center for 
Computer Literacy has been 
established at Northwestern 
State University to help make 
the public aware of computer 
literacy and the role of the 
computer — especially the 
microcomputer — in home, 
office and educational uses. 

Designed to serve NSU 
undergraduate and graduate 
students, area educators and 
the business community, the 
Center's primary objectives 
are to develop a scope and 
sequence on computer literacy 
for grades K-12 and also 
seminars and workshops on ■ 
computer literacy for 
educators, businessmen, 
parents and children. 

Appointed as the coor- 
dinator of NSU's Center for 
Computer Literacy was Dr. 
Tommy G. Johnson, a 
professor at Northwestern 
who currently serves as a 
member of the State 
Department of Education's 
task force on computer 

Johnson will coordinate all 
academic activities at Nor- 
thwestern relating to computer 
literacy, with special emphasis 
being given to graduate-level 
training and retraining in the 
application of computers. 

The coordinator will also 
work toward obtaining 
monetary and equipment 
grants to help the center 
maintain a strong continuing 
education posture in the area 
of computer literacy, which 
the state task force recently 
defined as "the knowledge of 
the capabilities, limitations, 
applications and implications 
of computer knowledge." 

According to Johnson, the 
center at Northwestern is 
expected to be viable in in- 
service education for teachers 
and effective with non-credit 
activities for the business 
community and parents and 
for dispensing information 
regarding the recent 
developments in computer 
literacy education. 

"The rapid growth of 
computer education in 
elementary, middle and 
secondary school systems 
across the country has made it 
necessary to provide 
educational opportunities 
designed for teachers and 
administrators," said 

He added, "Educational 
opportunities designed 
specifically for educators are 
extremely limited on the 
national level. Yet, the 
educational influence of the 
computer is significant. It is 
becoming a tool for all 
academic subjects. A quality 
program designed to provide 
direction for computer 
education and training for 
educators will have a major 
beneficial impact on computer 

education in Louisiana and 
throughout the country." 

To provide educators with a 
working knowledge of 
microcomputers, the Center 
will be offering in the spring 
and summers sessions of 1984 
workshops covering an in- 
troduction to microcom- 
puters, computer applications 
in the content areas and ad- 
vanced "BASIC," or other- 
language and problem-solving 

By the spring of 1985, the 

Center plans to develop 
regional and national con- 
ferences and seminars 
featuring leading computer 
educators from throughout 
the United States. 

The Center for Computer 
Literacy at Northwestern will 
begin in two or three years to 
"describe and field test a 
computer literacy program for 
grades K -8 and 9-12," said 
Johnson. NSU's Elementary 
Lab School and Middle Lab 
School will be used as in-house 

models for the program. 

Also, said Johnson, the 
Louisiana School for Math, 
Science and the Arts will be 
used as a model facility in 
addition to other schools in a 
10 to 15-parish area. 

Assisting parents and 
children who own or are 
considering owning a 
microcomputer is one of the 
major concerns of the Center. 

"It is estimated that the 
microcomputer for home and 
classroom use was set at 1.6 

million for 1982 and by 1984 
over 4 million will be in 
place," explained Johnson. 
"It is estimated that by 1986 
there will be 10 million home 
and classroom computers in 

Because "this is the age of 
the microcomputer," said 
Johnson, the Center at NSU 
will help equip educators, 
parents, businessmen and 
students with the skills and 
understanding they will need 
to be literate with computers.

Senior Art Exhibit Highlighted In Hanchey Gallery 

The lobby of the newly 
constructed Orville Hanchey 
Gallery at Northwestern will 
house Ruby Jewel Crow's 
Senior Art Exhibit. The 
exhibit will be open to the 
public on Nov. 13-18, 1983. 
Ms. Crow has selected from 
her portfolio: water colors, 
mirror images, pen and ink 
illustrations, and prints. All of 
Ms. Crow's work will be 
available for purchase. 

The exhibit will feature 
watercolors depicting the wet- 
into-wet technique, a personal 
favorite of the young artist. 

Upon relocating with her 
family to Cotton Valley, 
Louisiana from Houston, 
Texas in 1974, Ms. Crow 
attended Cotton Valley High 
School, receiving a Delta 
Sigma Theta Scholarship to 
attend Northwestern State 
University. Ms. Crow is 
presently pursuing an Ad- 
vertising Design degree and is 
employed as a Radio 
Telephone Operator at the 
University Police Department. 

Throughout her un- 
dergraduate career at NSU, 
Ms. Crow was heavily in- 

volved in both elected and 
appointed positions in the 
Student Government 
Association, in the primary 
campus level activities group 

(the Student Union Governing 
Board), the Association of 
Student Artists, and in 
professional organizations. 

Ms. Crow's interests are in 
designing and directing 
various creative, civic, and 
public projects-

6 # Opinion 

Tuesday, November 8, 1983 

The Opinions expressed on this page are strictly those of the author. Ihey 
do not neccessarily express the view of this paper, the student body of 
NSU, or the administration. The Current Sauce accepts all articles and 
letters. All correspondence must he signed and a phone number must 

accompany it. Guest editorials are accepted but they too must be signed. 
The Current Sauce reserves the right to edit any articles that come into 
our office, deleting anything that may be considered libelous. All articles 
must be turned in no later than the Thursday preceding publication. 


I have always harbored a certain degree of trust here at 
Northwestern --trust that I could alone at night from the 
Union to my room in Varnado without being bothered or that 
when sleeping in my room with the door unlocked I would not 
be in danger. It never occurred to me that I could actually be 
in danger. 

Last week's alleged attackings were very shocking to me, to 
say the least. On Monday night, I went to bed before my 
roommate came in. I left the door unlocked for her and went 
to sleep. 

Looking back, 1 see how careless this has been and I hope 
that if any other Northwestern student has been guilty of this, 
they will immediately think twoce and start locking doors. 

Sleeping in an unlocked room would not be nearly as 
dangerous if the outside dorm doors were kept locked after 
hours. I do not believe the problem lies with RA's or house 
directors -it lies with dorm residents who prop these doors 
open for one reason or another. This, too, must stop. 

No matter how late one comes in at night, there is always 
some method to get into the dorm. Some dormitories require 
an after-hours key while others have combination locks. 
There is no reason to prop a door open; laziness is no excuse. 

Another danger to consider is walking alone at night. 
Many areas on campus are well-lit, but others are not. It is 
these dimly-lit areas that should especially be avoided. 
Females --don't walk alone at night --that includes your 11:30 
jog. If it is dark and you have to get somewhere, share the 
ride or walk with someone. Just don't go alone. 

You may have been doing every one of the things I have 
told you not to ever since you have been at NSU and you have 
yet to encounter any dangers. That's fine. If you like taking 
chances, then find a horserace. This is one game where the 
stakes are much higher if you lose. 

You can bet that when I go to sleep the door will be locked. 

The weather has been great lately -1 wondered when we 
would ever get a feel of autumn temperatures. It seems a little 
strange, I guess, to see all those colorful trees while wearing a 
short-sleeved shirt and sweating at the same time. Now, 
though, I have a reason to wear my sweaters and it isn't 
because I haven't done laundry lately. Speaking of scenery, 
walking along Chaplain's Lake provides one with some very 
pleasant views. It is especially nice to see the ducks swimming 
around and playing. 

What mars the beauty is the constant presence of our very' 
own sludge. I am wondering just how thick that stuff is going 
to get. Maybe fifteen years from now when I am a 
distinguished alum, there'll be a scenic walkway across 
Chaplain's Lake to the water treatment plant. I can hardly 

There's already this huge bunch of green grass taking root 
out there. Perhaps the walkway will take shape sooner than I 

Tomorrow is the run-off elections for the titles of Mr and 
Miss NSU. In the run-off for Mr. NSU are Harlan Harvey 
and Stan Powell, for Miss. NSU, Alison Breazeale and 
Sharon Sampite. Be sure to go over to the Union between 8 
a.m. and 7 p.m. and cast your own personal vote. It does 
count, you know.

Dear Editor: This letter 
consists of one gripe and two 
constructive suggestions. The 
gripe is simply this: the 
Current Sauce is an em- 
barrassment to Northwestern. 
I do not need to elaborate. 
Most people either simply 
cringe or shake their heads 
sadly when the topic of the 
student newspaper comes up. 
While I have no desire to 
blame anyone for this un- 
fortunate state of affairs, I do 
have two (mutually exclusive) 
suggestions, either one of 
which may rectify the 

Suggestion One: Make a 
concerted effort to recruit a 
responsible staff and start 
reporting what's happening on 
this campus and in the 
community at large. 
Tuesday's "editorial" and the 
continuing paucity of news 
stories and features suggests 
that the current staff has run 
out of ideas. Here are some 
possibilities (not in any 
particular order of im- 
portance): A feature on 
faculty members who are 
microcomputer junkies; I 
know several who love to chat 
about their equipment: 
Malcolm Braudaway, Dean i 
Ed Graham, Dr. Marie 
Brukhead, Dr. Sara 
Burroughs, and Dr. Walter 

A column critically 
evaluating local eateries and 
pubs. (Be honest: the few 
goods ones need to be praised, 
the many bad ones roasted.) 

A regular column on 
religious issues of substance by 
representatives of our many 
local churches and church- 
related student 
organizations. (I know two 
students— Joel Pearce and 
David Adcock-who'd give 
you some weighty words.) 

Reviews of musical events, 
art exhibits, movies, theatrical 
productions. (I don't think 
Chris LouiselPs and Rhonda 
Flack's superb and inspired 
performances in "Children of 
a Lesser God" should go 

Articles on our 
distinguished lecturers. 
(Wasn't anyone embarrassed 
or enraged or enlightened or 
even "turned on" by Shere 
Hite's frank comments about 
human sexuality earlier this 
month? Movie critic and 
NCHS graduate Rex Reed will 
be here in November; why not 
interview some of his old high 
school teachers and tell us 
what the lad was like back 
then? A feature on the many 
fascinating older students at 
NSU. (Why did they return to 
college? What are their new 
career goals? How do they 
relate to younger students?) 

Articles about professors 
who have published books~or 
have books due out soon. 
(How many of our students 

know that Dr. Joe Dillard is 
an internationally acclaimed 
linguistics scholar with a string 
of highly regarded books to 
his credit? Or that Dr. Bill 
Bryant's whimsical cartoon 
book about armadillos was 
reviewed in People magazine? 
Or that Dr. Marietta LeBreton 
is writing the colorful history 
of NSU for our centennial 

An in-depth story on how 
NSU students deal with 
emotional problems. (Are 
their professors sympathic or 
uninterested? Do students 
know about the recently 
formed Counseling Center? 
Do they know where and when 
the local chapter of Alcoholics 
Anonymous meets?) 

A book review column. 
(Anyone out there read a 
good-or bad-book lately?) 

A record review column. (Is 
that new "B-52's" album 
worth $8.69?) 

Stories on some of the hot 
issues involving faculty: the 
current struggle over defining 
what constitutes a workload, 
the zero-base audit, faculty 
evaluations, merit raises, the 
tenure policy, and possible 
retrenchment. (Contact the 
presidents of the Faculty ' 
Senate and the local chapter of 
the AFTC and Vice-President 
Southerland on these.) 

A student reaction survey to 
our latest local clown show: 
the parish sheriffs race. 
("Saturday Night Live" 
material, for sure.) 

A feature on the tiny cadre 
of NSU professors and 
students busily writing steamy 
romance novels. 

A feature on problems 
confronting foreign students 
or students who live in 
Leesville or students who work 
or handicapped students. 

A feature on interaction 
(social, intellectual?) between 
NSU students and pupils at the 
new Louisiana School for 
Math, Science, and the Arts. 

An article on student 1 
hobbies. (I see a flier posted 
on several bulletin boards 
around campus soliciting 
Dungeons and Dragons 
players. Sounds like a good 
place to start.) 

An annotated calendar of 

An article on the Wesley 
Foundation series on nuclear 
disarmament. Has anything 
quotable or controversial been 
uttered at these luncheon 
lectures? (Hey, folks, there's 
a larger world out there, and 
the anti-nuke forces are 
growing daily.) 

An editorial on why our 
community, faculty, and 
student body in general seem 
oblivious to the threat of 
nuclear warfare. 

A feature on gay students at 
NSU. How do they cope in a 
relatively straight, con- 
servative, and homophobic 

environment? (Does the Sauce 
dare flirt with controversy?) 

An editorial assessing 
President Orze's impact on 
NSU. (A hard-nosed, in- 
vestigative, and thoughtful 
reporter is needed for this 

A regular column by dif- 
ferent faculty members on 
topics informative or. 
provocative. (Start with Jim 
Simmons and his musings on 
the benevolence of the 
cosmos, then recruit Dr. 
Tommy Johnson to talk about 
his Center for Computer 
Literary, then solicit some 
paragraphs from Dr. Pete 
Gregory on the plight of 
Louisiana Indians, and then 
get Dr. Bill Poe to discuss his 
dual career as history 
professor and Baptist 
minister. (That's a month of 
columns right there.) 

A regular column on NSU 
graduate students who are 
currently, mysteriously not 
visible on the pages of the 
Current Sauce. (Where are 
they? Permanently ensconced 
in library carrells?) 

Classified ads. And so 
forth... There is plenty of 
interesting stuff going on 
around this place. Maybe 
NSU is not as dull as some 
people think. 

Suggestion Two: 
Discontinue publication of the 
Sauce altogether. Junk it! If a 
radical act of journalistic CPR 
cannot be performed, then 
perhaps it should be allowed 
to wheeze its last breathe and 
die. A blatant act of 
euthanasia may be the only 
humane solution. The final 

Face it: a worthwhile 
newspaper ought to, in some 
small way, inform, inspire, 
infuriate, provoke, startle, 
enrich, and enlighten its 
readers. An ill-arranged 
assortment of reprints from 
the Natchitoches Times, 
unedited news releases, ads for 
feminine hygiene products and 
beer, and lots of white space is 
a heartless waste of paper, ink, 
and students bucks. 

If students, faculty, and 
anyone else interested in the 
Sauce can't or won't pitch in 
and contribute some ideas, 
stories, opinion pieces, and 
letters to the editor, then a 
funeral for the Sauce should 
be one of our centennial events

He'll seldom leave a doubt in 
your mind about what he 
thinks of an item he reviews.

hanging. When I'm finished

I've had to start writing a 
more balanced review because 
some aren't my kind of movie, 
but they do have some very 
good sides to them. For in- 
stance, The Right Stuff, is not 
my kind of movie, but it has 
some of the best shots I have 
ever seen of space. But, NO 
movie should be that long (3 
hrs. and 20mins.).' 

Reed is very critical of 
movies shown today stating" a 
person would have to be

movies. u 

A man who watches over 
700 movies a year could very 
easily develop a critical pen. 
Reed has penned such cliches 
as teenage zit movies and 
referred to Carol Channing as 
a walking alarm clock. 

Although Reed graduated 
from Natchitoches High 
School, the only other 
distinction that the school 
holds is he attended it longer 
than any other school between 
grades 1 and 12. Reed at- 
tended 13 schools before his 
parents hand picked the 
Natchitoches area for the site

school. They decided that 
moving about the oil patch of 
South Louisiana wasn't the 
ideal setting for their Rex. 

He got his first break in 
Venice, Italy when he was 
visitting the Venice Film 
Festival. He received in- 
terviews with several noted 
film stars and subsequently 
had articles printed in the New

Magazine. From that point his 
career skyrocketted. 

He's done everything except

Lady Demons Open 
Season, Crush SLU 

The Northwestern Lady 
Demons destroyed the 
Southeastern Lady Lions 80- 
42 in a controlled scrimmage 
held at Doyle High School 
near Hammond this past 
Thursday night. 

It was a close game for the 
first half with the Lady 
Demons only enjoying a 34-26 
lead at the midway point. 

But in the second half, they 
showed why many people are 
expecting great things out of 
them this year as they pulled 
away to crush the hapless SLU 

Lady Demon head coach 
Pat Pierson said she was 
"pretty pleased" with the way 
the Lady Demons played. 

Among those who stood out 
were senior Tracy Taylor who 
had a game high 21 points and 
six rebounds and freshman 
Annie Harris who grabbed a 
game high 13 rebounds in 
addition to scoring 10 points. 

Sophomore guard Lonnie 
Banks scored 12 points despite 
playing with a painful leg 
injury, and Lisa Cater and 
Linda Grayson added 15 and 
1 1 points respectively. 

Freshman Kristy Harris was 
the ony other Lady Demon in 
double figures with 10. 

Other Lady Demons who 
scored were Teressa Thomas 
with nine, Kim Paulk with 
eight, Sandy Pugh with six, 
Janet Ryan and Yolanda 


Brown with four each 
Jamie Pridgeon with 

The Lady Demons next 
action will be tomorrow night 
(Wednesday) at 7:00 in the 1- 
M Building in the annual game 
against the Demon Booster 

The Lady Demons have won 
for the past three years, but 
the Booster club is loaded with 
talent this year and could 
break that three year jinx. 

Demons Play 
Canada Friday 

The Northwestern Demoua 
open their season Friday night 
by playing the team from 
Canada in an exhibition game 
here at the Intramural Gym. 

Game time is 7:00. 

Sponsored by the Lions 
Club, the game will give NSU 
fans an early look at the young 
Demon squad headed by 
coach Wayne Yates. 

The Demons lost four 
starters off the team that went 
9-19 last year, and this year 
looks to be one of rebuilding. 

Tickets for the game are 
$3.00 for adults and $1.00 for 
all students, including NSU 
students. All proceeds will go 
to the Lions club and their 
sponsorship of the "Sight 
Conservation Program" and 
their Crippled Children's 
Camp in Leesville. 

Elliot Dawson bulled his 
way over the goal line with 24 
seconds left in the game, and 
following the kickoff, senior 
linebacker Gary Morgan 
intercepted a crucial Nicholls 
St. pass at the Demon 29-yard 
line to give Northwestern their 
second win of the season, a 24- 
21 victory over the Colonels. 

Northwestern scored first 
and built up a 14-0 lead on a 
29-yard Wayne Van to David 
Groman touchdown pass just 
two minutes into the second 

Six minutes later, Demon 
running back Frank Graham 
plowed over from the two yard 
line to give NSU the first 14 
points of the game. Benny 
Brouillette added both extra 

Nicholls then added a field 
goal with just two minutes left 
in the half to close the gap to 

NSU took the second half 
kickoff and drove down to the 
Nicholls end of the field and 
Brouillete kicked a 29-yarder 
to give the Demons a 17-3 

Nicholls refused to play 
dead however, and Lionel 
Vital ran eight yards with 
seven minutes gone in the third 
quarter to pull Nicholls within 
eight at 17-9. 

Vital added his second 
touchdwon of the night on a 
26-yard run just seconds into 
the fourth quarter to put 
Nicholls within two at 17-15. 

Nicholls went ahead for the 
first time with eight minutes 
left, 21-17 on a Keith Menard 
to Alan Picard 21-yard pass. 

That set the stage for 
Dawson's last minute heroics. 

With the ball resting on the 
three yard line, Dawson took 
the option pitch and swept 
around the end for the final 
points of the nights, giving the 
Demons a come-from-behind 

Nicholls got one last chance 
when they took over on the 
midfield stripe. Menard

completed a three yard 
with time running out, 
tried to throw down 
middle, but Morgan 
ticipated the play and made a 
clutch interception to snuff 
out any hopes of a Nicholls 

Dawson rushed for 101 
yards on only 12 carries for the 
night. In doing so, he climbed 
all the way to third spot on the 
Demon seasonal rushing 
leaders chart for the year, 
trailing only Leroy Ellis and 
Kenny Mosely. 

Van went the whole way at 
quarterback for the Demons 
and completed just under half 
his passes, eight for 19 with 
two interceptions. 

Defensively for Nor- 
thwestern, Gary Reasons and 
Mike Richardson had seven 
tackles apiece and Ernest 
Crittenden and Freddie Smith 
had six each. 

Northwestern' s last two 
games of the season will both 

be home games against two 
traditionally tough in-state 

Next week the Demons 
tackle Southeastern and then 
the following week, a very 
strong Northeast team comes 
into town to close out the 
Demons season.

Lady Demons Meet Booster Club 

Northwestern's Lady 
Demons will be trying to make 
it three years in a row when 
they meet the NSU Booster 
Club in a pre-season 
basketball clash on November 
9. The game will start at 7:00 
p.m. in the Intramural 
Building and there will be no 
admission charge. 

Lady Demon Coach Pat 
Pierson has also announced 

that the Lady Demons will 
play three scrimmage games in 
North and Central Louisiana. 
Northwestern will travel to 
Downsville High School for a 
scrimmage on Nov. 1, will 
play at Pitkin High on Nov. 1C 
and will play at Buckeye High 
on Nov. 14. 

The three scrimmage games 
at the high schools will be 
intra-squad matches with the 

Sophomore sensation Lonnie Banks and standout 
senior Tracy Taylor will be just two of four returning 
starters for the NSU Lady Demons when they take on 
the Northwestern Booster Club here at the NSU 
Intramural Building Wednesday n ight at 7:00. - 

Lady Demon team divided 
into two squads. Senior center 
Tracey Taylor will be retur- 
ning to her alma mater when 
NSU plays Downsville, Kim 
Paulk and Janette Ryan both 
played at Buckeye and Pierson 
prepped and later coached at 
Pitkin High. Assistant Coach 
James Smith also coached at 
Downsville High before 
joining the Lady Demon 

The Lady Demons and the 
Booster Club squad have met 
in each of the past two years in 
Prather coliseum, with the 
Lady Demons winnng on each 
occasion . This year the 
contest has been moved as 
repairs to the coliseum are still 
not completed. 

With the contest to be 
played in the intramural 
building, Pierson and her 
squad do not have the home 
court advantage. The Booster 
Club, with several former 
Demon athletes on the squad, 
should feel right at home in 
what is often referred to as 
"the old men's gym ." 

It's always a pleasure to 
have the Booster Club game 
that shows the club is involved 
with our program,' said 
Pierson. 'This year should be 
a good contest. Our new 
players are still adjusting to a 
more physical style of 
basketball, and this will 
certainly be a physical contest. 

Playing on their homecourt 
will certainly be psychological 
advantage for the Booster 

The Lady Demons who were 
16-9 a year ago, will open the 
regular season at the Kansa? 
Classic on November 18, 
meeting North Carolina, a 
team that ended last season 
ranked 18th in the nation after 
losing to Georgia in the 
NCAA tournament.

Trustees Raise Tuition $25 

By John Ramsey 

The State Board of Trustees 
voted 14-4 on Friday, 
November 4, to increase 
tuition by $25 for the spring 
semester at nine Louisiana 
universities, including Nor- 

Northwestern's tuition for 
the fall semester was $290, 
with $63 added for student 
assessments. The fee increase 
means it will cost a commuting 
student $378 to register for 
classes in January. 

The increase was proposed 
by Dr. Larry Crane, President 
of Southeastern Louisiana 
University. Although the 
tuition hike is for the spring 
semester only, it will probablv 

The money will be used to 
improve equipment, materials, 
and supplies at the nine 
universities affected. 

Financial Aid officer Terry 
Faust said that federal 
government aid will not be 
affected by the increase. Since 
a student's total tuition may 
vary by as much as $75, the 
$25 increase simply will be

board's vote are Nor-

Kennedy Assassination Brings Back Memories 

By John Ramsey 

Next Tuesday will mark the 
twentieth anniversary of one 
of the most tragic events in 
American history - the 
assassination of President 
John F. Kennedy. 

America's 35th President 
was shot on November 22, 
1963, in Dallas, Texas. His 
alleged assassin, Lee Harvey 
Oswald, was shot and killed 
two days later by Dallas 
nightclub owner Jack Ruby as 
the entire country watched on 
national television. 

According to the November 
29, 1963 issue of Current 
Sauce, several scheduled 
ev ents at Northwestern State 
College were held as planned 
°n the night of Kennedy's 
death. Several students wrote 
Jj» to u;e paper, angry that a 
dance was held just hours after 
•JFK was pronounced dead. As 
°ne student observed, "the 
dance was held as usual, and 
students were drinking as if in 
celebration." Another NSC 
student expressed his disbelief 
that Natchitoches theatres 
w ere packed that night. 

Despite a pJea from the NSC 
Student Council to hold a day 
°* mourning, the ad- 
ministration refused to cancel 
passes the Monday following 
l he assassination, prompting 
an uproar from the student 

body. One student observed 
"it's sad when we get a 
holiday when we win one 
football game, but not when 
the President of the United 
States is killed." 

Northwestern did schedule a 
short memorial service for 
President Kennedy on 
Monday morning. NSC 
President John Kyser spoke at 
the service, as did several 
Natchitoches officials. 

Myrna Webb, NSC Class of 
'65, remembers "classes were 
scheduled for Monday, but 
nobody went tq class. Most 
instructors didn't show up. 
For the entire week, nobody 
felt like doing much of 
anything - except crying." 

Susan Graham, a student 
in 1963, recalls "I didn't 
believe it until I saw it on TV. 
Like everyone else, I just 
couldn't believe he was dead. I 
cancelled my plans, for that 
night and went back to my 
room in Varnado and cried." 

Jo Anne DeVries, a 
librarian at Watson Library, 
was attending an afternoon 
concert in Chicago when she 
heard the news. "They an- 
nounced the shooting at the 
concert," she recalls. "The 
concert then continued. We 
didn't know for several hours 
that he had been killed." 

Rhonda Williamson, a 1966 

graduate of Northwestern, 
' remembers that her sorority 
had an exchange with one of 
NSC's fraternities planned for 
that night. "We went ahead 
and held it, but everyone was 
too shocked - and scared for 
the nation's future - to have a 
good time. Everyone went 
into Natchitoches to find 
something to keep our minds 
off of JFK. It didn't work." 

Bill Peterson, an NSC 
student in 1963, said "I was 
never a big supporter of JFK; 
in fact, I voted for Nixon in 
1960. But when I heard 
Kennedy was dead, I felt like I 
had lost a good friend. I 

couldn't comprehend how this 
could happen in the most 
civilized nation on Earth." 

A foreign diplomat wrote in 
Time magazine that "I never 
admired Americans as much 
as I did after the tragic 
events of that day. No matter 
what their race, religion, sex, 
or political preference, they 
stood together - as 

The feelings of many 
Americans can be expressed by 
a quote from Harold O. 
Sanborn. He said "I did not

Could LBS Be For You? 

In the past lew issues of the 
Current Sauce, various articles 
have been written about the 
problems on campus.including 
drug arrests and possible 
rapes. There is one topic that 
is rarely talked about in the 
Sauce, but is certainly one of 
the bigger concerns among 
college students: overweight. 

If you are one of those 
people that could stand to lose 
a few pounds or are simply 
tired of being heavy, then LBS 
(pounds) is for you. Lets Be 
Slim is a weight control 
program that is being con- 
ducted in conjunction with the 
University Counseling Center 
and will be under the direction 
of counselors Michelle Miner, 
who will be working with the 
females and Cliff Lopez, who 
will work with the males. 

LBS will meet every 
Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the 
Counseling Center (Room 104 
Kyser Hall). Anyone who is 
suffering from overweight, 

whether five or fifty 
welcome to join LBS. The 
only prerequisite is that you 
are willing to stick with the 
program long enough to reach 
your personal goal. When 
asked to comment about the 
program, Michelle said "LBS 
is based on the nutritional 
aspects of eating, proper diet, 
how to eai , when and where to 
eat. Behavior modification 
techniques will be used to help 
the individual change their 
eating habits. We will also use 

charts to help each person 
pinpoint the times and 
situations when they will be 
most likely to overeat." 

There is no need to sign up, 
just show up at the counseling 
center on Wednesday. All 
students are welcome and LBS 
is not limited to females. It is 
necessary that each participant 
bring with them an item that is 
meaningful to them. The 
purpose for this will be given 
in detail at the first meeting. 

Winners ToBe Announced 

The winners of Contest 
Argus will be announced at 
Reader's Theatre on Wed- 
nesday night, November 16 at 
7:30 p.m. in the Loft Theatre 
of the Center for Creative and 
Performing Arts. Literary 
contributions are in the final 
stages of judging, which is 
being done by faculty 
members of the Language 

Department. Art entries will 
be reviewed by a guest judge. 
Because there were no lab 
facilities for most of the 
semester, there will be no 
photography contest this fall; 
however, all entries will be 
held for the spring contest, 
and both art and photography 
will be displayed at the 
Reader's Theatre. 

What does it take to get 
a good job these days? A good education is a 
necessity. Experience certainly helps. Intel- 
ligence. A willingness to learn. Ambition to 
get to the top. The ability to get along with 
people. And energy, because without energy 
there just wouldn't be any jobs to fill. In order 
to supply that energy, electric companies must 
take advantage of the most up-to-date tech- 
nology, build facilities as efficient as possible 
and make full use of every available energy 
source including nuclear power and coal. 
Energy You need it to get a job.

...Bobby Hebert? 

Bobby Hebert, a prominent 
figure in the Demons' record 
book, loves football. After 
leading the Demons to a 
successful season, Hebert was 
drafted in the third round by 
the Michigan Panthers of the 
USFL. Once he became the 
starting quarterback, Hebert 
never gave the position up. He 
made history when he led his 
team to the new league's first 
championship game and was 
selected Most Valuable Player 
in the Panther's victory. 

Setting records was not new 
to Hebert. With Joe Delaney 
as running back, there was 
little need for the Demons to 
pass the ball, but pass they 
did. Hebert holds records for 
most completions in a game, 
most yards in a game, most 
yards in a season and most 
touchdown passes in a game. 
He ranks second in most 
attempts in a season, most 
completions in a season, most 
completions in a career, most 
yards in a career, most yards 
averaged per game in a season, 
and nn,n touchdown passes in 
a career. 

In addition, Hebert tied his 
record in most consecutive 
Pass completions. Last but not 
least is Bobby's record for the 
longest forward pass which 
covers an incredible 98 yards. 

As of now, in the USFL 
ot f- season, Hebert is back at 
NSU, finishing up the credits 
he needs to graduate.

The Word Is... 


How about that pre-registration. 1 sure am glad that we 
have it. It makes life so much simpler. 

Started during the term of former Registrar Dr. Austin 
Temple, the pre-registration concept developed into 
something that has really benefited the students of Nor- 

Now, under the tutelage of the new Registrar, Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner, pre-registration is something that every 
NSU student should take advantage of, because, quite 
simply, it gets rid of a lot of headaches. 

Having a last name that starts with C, I was supposed to 
pre-register at 1 :30 yesterday. The lords of pre-registration 
said that every half hour a new group of alphabetized 
students should be able to pre-register. 

Well, who says truth in advertising isn't ali ve and well? 
At precisely 2:00 I walked out of there with my card 
stamped, in spite of the fact that after four years here I 
sometimes still forget which table to go to. 

But I do have a few questions. 1 filled out my 
graduating senior card, and one line said, "Expect to 
graduate" with a blank to be filled in. 

Well, I talked to several people about it. No one could 
figure out what was supposed to go there. One guy I know 
put "Expect to graduate-Magna Cum Laude." I don't 
think that's right. 

Another one said, "Expect to graduate-Yes I do." 
And of course, the ever-popular, "Expect to graduate- 
Not if Dr. (no names please)has anything to do with it." 

Another thing that gets to me is the class cards them- 
selves. You have to sign your name in ink, on the line, and 
every single place that I was supposed to sign was chocked 
full of those stupid punch holes. In four years here I have 
only been able to sign my name, uninterrupted, twice. 
Those holes have got to go. 

And of course, you would think that after four years 
and 11 semesters (summers included), the people at the 
Registrar's Office would know my address, place of birth, 
parents' names, and church affiliation. I've filled out all 
those things at least 12 times. I still don't follow the logic 
behind putting your address on one form three different 
times. I ain't a Rockefeller, I only have one home. 

It was amazing the number of people here that have a 
last name that begins with Z. I noticed a bunch of Zmiths, 
Zones, Zohnsons, Zienvenus, Zamseys, Zechermeyer's, 
and of course, Zunninghams. 

It was also amazing the number of people who had to 
register early because they were going home today. I 
thought the Thanksgiving holidays were next week. 

Anyway, in spite of those minor inconveniences, I thing 
that the overall success of pre-registration more than 
merits its continued existence as a permanent fixture at 
Northwestern. -Joe Cunningham

Dear Editor 

This letter is in reference to 
the article by Dr. Snowden on 
feel that he is correct in the 
sense that the SAUCE could 
be improved; however, his 
statement that the SAUCE is a 
disgrace to Northwestern is a 
bit harsh to say the very least. 
After all, it's all we have and 
we should support it more and 
criticize it less. 

Dr. Snowden has many 
good ideas for improving the 
SAUCE. One problem with 
most of them, however, is that 

they take a great deal of time. 
The SAUCE is put out on a 
weekly oasis, hence leaving 
little time for indepth 

In addition, to my 
knowledge, all the journalism 
majors are not required to 
work on the SAUCE, 
although many of them do. 
Perhaps requiring them to 
work on the SAUCE in some 
capacity would increase its 
quality. The very least it 
would do is shift some of the 
burden from the few reporters 
who may not even be jour- 

nalism majors onto the 
shoulders of the people in 
journalism who would benefit 
from the experience. 

No, the CURRENT 
TIMES by any means, but 
through increased interest and 
input from the campus, more 
reporte-s who are journalists, 
and a better variety in material 
on which to report, our paper 
and thus the image of Nor- 
thwestern State University 
would be improved.

Dear Editor, 

In reference to Joe Cun- 
ningham's "first word" on 
Fraser Snowden's editorial, I 
consider the Current Sauce's 
innovative practice of replying 
to an unpublished letter to the 
editor to be inexcusably 
unethical and unprofessional 
journalism; furthermore, I 
question the propriety of such 
letter being answered by the 
Sports Editor rather than the 
Editor-in-Chief. In 
euphemistic response to the 
rest of Joe's editorial I say: 

Debra Waters Clapper 

Dear Editor: 

Over the last few weeks, the 
Wesley Foundation has been 
sponsoring different lecturers 
at the Thursday Noon 
Alternatives, speaking on the 
subject, 'Nuclear War: Will It 
Happen? Again?' Attendance 
has been so-so because of the 
conflict with noon classes, but 
has been well received by those 
who could make it. Dr. 
Snowden was very perceptive 
to realize that there have been 
some statements worth 
quoting. Our main reason for 
pursuing such a controversial 
topic was to stir up feelings 
and elicit action. 

This coming Sunday 
evening we will have the 
opportunity to share once 

again by coming together to 
view the telecast of an ABC 
Television movie, THE DAY 
AFTER. I would like to 
personally invite all interested 
persons to come to Wesley and 
watch the movie and then 
discuss the implications. It 
has been strongly suggested 
nationwide that it not be 
viewed alone. The film has 
been described as 'powerful, 
frighteningly realistic, 
relentlessly depressing, and 
very non-judgemental.' 

Do you know what your 
response would be as a 
responsive, responsible 
Christian at a time of nuclear 
In Christ 

Rev. Barbara S. Duke 

Are You Turning Left Or Right? 

Everyone who has driven an 
automobile has seen this 
object. Averaging a length of 
6 inches, it is located on the 
left side of an automobile's 
steering column. It is movable 
-either up or down — and 
requires only to be initialized 
into motion. When its purpose 
is fulfilled, it returns to its 
regular position. Putting this 
object in motion requires little 
physical effort and time -a 
flick of the wrist, a couple 
seconds at the most. 

So if everyone is supposedly 
aware of this object's existence 
and purposes, why in the 
world is it that more and more 
people aren't using their 
blinker switches to signal 

Sunday afternoon alone I 
counted 5 drivers who 
neglected to signal turns -both 
on campus and in town. 

Monday afternoon, within a 
span of 20 minutes, 2 drivers 
just veered off to the left 
without so much as a single 
wink of their blinkers, much 
less a full-fledged signal. 

I can't believe that people 
are so busy holding the 
steering wheel with both hands 

that they can't spare a couple 
of seconds to signal a turn and 
possibly prevent an accident. 

In case you are unaware, or 
have forgotten the rules since 
10th grade Driver's 
Education, a driver can be 
ticketed for failure to signal a 
turn, if he is caught. Not only 
that, if this failure to signal 
causes an accident, the driver 

could be in serious trouble. 
And that isn't good for your 
safety or the other fellow's 
safety, not to mention the 
insurance rates. 

So I am asking you, please 
take the time to signal a turn. 
If not all the time, then at least 
when you see me driving 
around town.

In most cases the lenses can be worn 12 to 18 hours a day 
without any problems, especially in the wearing of soft lenses. 
Some patients can only wear hard lenses 8-10 hours a day. 

Soft lenses can normally be worn longer than hard lenses, and of 
course the extended wear lenses are worn 24 hours a day. 

Your optometrist will advise you of the proper wearing time. If 
you have any doubts or questions about your particular case, 
check with your optometrist.

Last Home Football Game 
Sat. VsNLU 

I-M Superbowl 


Demons Drop Lions 

Safety Michael Richardson 
led a standout defensive 
performance and the NSU 
Demons raised their record to 
3-7 with a 23-7 thrashing of 
the Southeastern Lions 
Saturday night. 

Richardson intercepted five 
Kevin Hebert passes on the 
night, and Gary Morgan and 
Robert Moore each picked off 
one to literally steal the game 
away from SLU. 

The game started with the 
Northwestern defense making 
itself felt early. Senior 
linebacker Gary Morgan took 
off on the opening kick and 
leveled the SLU runner on his 
return , asserting the Demons' 
-intentions. Morgan also made 
the first stop on the first play 
of the drive. SLU couldn't 
move the ball, and attempted 
to punt, the Southeastern 
punter was promptly leveled 
by Richardson, in his first big 
play of the night, giving NSU 
first and goal on the 10. 

The Demon offense 
couldn't move the required 
yards so Benny Brouillette 
came in and kicked a 22-yard 
field goal. 

SLU was forced to punt 
again, but once more the NSU 
offense couldn't move, and 
Wayne Van's pass was in- 
tercepted setting up the Lions 
only score of the night. 

A Van fumble set up the 
Lions on the NSU 24, but the 
defense averted a score when 
Richardson picked off his 
third pass of the night and 
returned it a school record 97 
yards for the touchdown, 
making it 9-7 NSU. 

NSU scored again on an 
Elliot Dawson 30-yard run 
after catching a short pass, 
and then Richardson in- 
tercepted his founh passof the 
night, setting up NSU on the 
SLU 33. From there, fullback 
Chuck Dupree did most of the 
bull work for the Demons, 
picking up 26 yards in three 
carries, and Van kept the ball 
on a quarterback sneak for the 
score making it 23-7. 

Richardson Named 
Player of Week 

Demon safety Michael 
Richardson who intercepted 
five Southeastern passes 
Saturday, has been chosen 
Sports Illustrated defensive 
player of the week. 

Richardson's five in- 
terceptions tied an NCAA 
record, and his 122-yards in 
returns set a Division I-AA 

Richardson, a senior, also 
set a school record with a 97- 
yard interception return for a 

Lady Demons Face 
Toughest Schedule 

The Lady Demons open up 
perhaps their toughest 
schedule ever with an ap- 
pearance in the Kansas 
Tournament, facing North 
Carolina Friday night in 

North Carolina finished 
their season ranked 18th last 
year, bowing to the University 
of Georgia in the NCAA 
tournament, and this year 
were picked to repeat that No. 
18 slot. 

While yet unranked, the 
Lady Demons nonetheless

nave been getting plenty ot 
national attention with the 
official NCAA Newsletter 
offering the opinion that the 
Lady Demons were indeed a 
team to be reckoned with 
because, as they put it, NSU is 

Lady Demon coaches Pat 
Pierson and James Smith both 
agree that it will be a tough 

"They have big people," 
Pierson said, "we'll probably 
have to shoot from the out- 

She added, "We'll have to 
force them into an up tempo 

Agreeing with Pierson, 
Smith also said, "(The) 
defense will have to put alot of 

pressure on me ball, we can 
probably pressure them." 

North Carolina will be led 
into the game by Tresa Brown, 
a 6-2 center who averaged 17.1 
points and 7.3 rebonds a game 
last year, for the 22-8 team. 

But. the Ladv Demons are 
not without big guns of their 
own. They lost only one 
person off last year's team, 
leading scorer Stephany 
Washington, but they have 
16.9 points a game Tracy 
Taylor in the middle, 1 1 .4 
points a game Teressa Thomas 
at the point, and 10.1 ppg. 
running guard Lonnie Banks. 

After the Kansas Tourney, 
the Lady Demons will return 
home to play another national 
power in LSU here at Prather 
Coliseum starting at 5:45.

Lady Demons Whip Boosters in Physical Contest 

The Lady Demons over- 
came a very, very physical 
Demon Booster Club squad to 
nip the Boosters by a 73-69 
score in their final exhibition 
game of the season, before an 
enthusiastic crowd at the 
Intramural Building Friday 

The win gives the Lady 
Demons a four game win 
streak in the annual series. 

The much bigger, and far 
more agressive Booster Club 
opened an early eight point 
lead on the Lady Demons.who 
substituted freely throughout 
the night. With about ten 
minutes left in the first half 
however, the Lady Demons 
cut that lead to two points, 
and then went in to the 
halftime break behind by just 

a 41-38 count. 

In the second half, the Lady 
Demons used an up-tempo 
offense to put the game away, 
wearing out the visitors and 
physically damaging the men 
as well. 

Lady Demons head coach 
Pat Pierson acknowledged 
that the game was indeed a 
physical one. "It was a 
physical game," she said,

Demons Drop 

by Joel Langton 

The Northwestern men's 
basketball team committed 22 
turnovers on the way to a 93- 
82 loss to Team Canada in 
action at the Intramural 
Building Friday night. 
The Demons went ahead 7-6 
on a shot by Kenneth Moody 
after six and a half minutes of 
play. The roundballers en- 
joyed as much as a six point 
lead before relinquishing it 
with a little over two minutes 
left in the first half and fell 
behind by seven points before 
the buzzer. 

Not to be kept down, the 
hoopsters battled back and 
erased the deficit before five 
minutes had elapsed. All it 
took was slam dunk by 
Kenneth Moody to spark the 
Men past the Canadians. 
Robert Anthony put the 
Demons ahead with a tur- 

naround jumper. 

The lead was sweet but 
extremely short. The team 
from north of the border went 
back ahead nearly 20 seconds 
later, 47-46. 

It was all Canada after that, 
as the Demons showed too 
many signs of playgroundism. 

Several Demons asserted 
themselves as definite con- 
tributing factors in the up- 
coming season. Gerald Tibbs 
showed alot of promise with 
six assists at the point guard 

Robert Anthony and 
Kenneth Moody made their 
presence felt Friday night 
scoring 19 and 13 points 
respectively at the forward 
positions . 

The season opener for the 
Demons will be against the 
Northeast Indians November 
28,at the newly roofed 
and floored Prather Coliseum. 

Tipoff time for the game is 
7:30, or immediately following

shot selection and hit the 
offensive boards well. I 
thought the new kids adjusted 
very well to the offense and 

Senior center Tracy Taylor 
led the Lady Demons with 12 
points and she had seven 
rebounds. Lightning fast 
Lonnie Banks chipped in 10 
points on a 5 of 8 performance 
from the field as did Teressa 
Thomas on a 5 for 9 showing. 

Lisa Carter and Linda 
Grayson had nine points each 
and Kristy Harris, Sandy 
Pugh, and Janet Ryan scored 
six markers. 

Leading rebounders for the 
Lady Demons, besides Taylor 
who had seven, were Grayson 
who grabbed a team high 11, 
Banks with five and Kim 
Paulk wth four. 

The Lady Demons open 
their season this Friday against 
18th-ranked North Carolina 
and their first home game is

Volume LXXII, No. 13 
November 29, 1983 

Myrna Wilson, a Coushatta Indian basket weaver, and her 
family will be featured at the twelfth annual Indian Crafts 
Day on December 3. From 8 am until 4 pm, in the 
Williamson Museum on the second floor of Keyser Hall, 
craftsmen will make and sell pinestraw baskets, cane baskets, 
white oak baskets, beadwork, and toys. Hide-tanning, wood- 
carving, and various other folk crafts will be demonstrated. 

Weaving, Beading 

And Tanning 
At Craft Day 

For slightly over a decade 
now, Indians from the seven 
communities in Louisiana 
have begun weaving baskets, 
making syrup, stringing beads, 
tanning deerskins, and 
packing up to come to the 
Natchitoches Christmas 
Festival. From octogenarians 
to small children, Coushattas, 
Choctaws, Tubicas, Biloxis, 
and Houma visit the town 
where their ancestors came to 
the first American trading post 
built west of the Mississippi 
River. The Anthropology 
Club at Northwestern State 
University's Department of 
History, Social Science and 
Social Work host the crafts 
sale for Louisiana Indian 
communities who have offered 
them a chance to learn about 
Indian culture. Held at the 
Williamson Museum in Keyser 
Hall on the campus, students 
ar >d visitors are likely to meet 
People from all over 
Louisiana, and Indians from 
as far away as Canada drop in 
to visit with the s of George 
A| len of the Jena Choctaw- 
recently recognized by the 
Smithsonian Institution for his 
c ane basketry and one of the 
j*o traditional hide tanners 
Jf't in the Southeastern United 
^Stes^and Claude Medford, 

Jr. of Natchitoches, whose 
works are currently touring 
North America as part of the 
Smithsonian's exhibit, Indian 
Harvests, attract collectors 
from all over. The palmetto 
baskets, Christmas ornaments 
and moss dolls of the Houma 
weaver, Marie Dean offer 
striking sights to North 
Louisiana folks not aware of 
the Indian and French culture 
in our marshlands. Oc- 
cassionally, an Oklahoma or 
Mississippi Indian craft- 
sperson will join the group, 
swapping ideas and crafts. Bel 
Abbey, a Koasati Indian, and 
his daughters, all recognized 
as master craftspeople by the 
Natchitoches Folk Festival 
bring their traditional 
pinestraw and cane basketry. 

At the Williamson Museum 
in Keyser Hall on the NSU 
campus , the craftspeople 
demonstrate and sell their 
crafts. As no overhead is 
charged, craft prices are 
reasonable, and people get a 
chance to watch the artists 
make things as their tribes 
have done for centuries. From 
8 to 4 p.m. on December 3, 
Christmas Festival Day, 
Natchitoches becomes living 
history, a real Indian com- 
munity again. 

Delta Ballet To Perform 

One of the world's most- 
famous and best-loved ballets

the Special Events committee. 

One is the Kick-Off Banquet 
scheduled for January 25, 
1984 at 7:30 p.m. in the 
Student Union Ballroom. The 
Banquet will be preceded by a 
cocktail reception with a cash 
bar in the foyer beginning at 
6:30 p.m. 

The program will focus on 
highlights of Northwestern's 
100 years of service to the 
community and state. Alumni 
representing various eras in 
the school's history will 
reminisce about their ex- 
periences. Accompnaying 
their presentations will be a 
multi-media slide presentation 
and musical numbers from the 
past. A unique part of the 
banquet will be the menu 
which will be historically 
accurate as to the type of food 
that might have been served at 
a banquet in 1884. 

Dr. J. Robert Smith, 
Conductor of the Nat- 
chitoches Northwestern 
Symphony Orchestra, will be 
on the podium for this 
thrilling event. A native of 
Shreveport, Smith received 
degrees from Centenary 
College and the Eastman 
School of Music. He was 
awarded the Doctorate from 
the University of Texas. Dr. 
Smith has been a faculty 
member in Northwestern State 
University's Music Depart- 
ment since 1965 and he served

"Nutcracker" was first 
performed in St. Petersburg in 
1892 as a beautiful and nn- 
propriate Christmas gift. 

The Delta Festival Ballet 
was founded in 1969 as a 
regional non-professional 
company. Over the years, 
however, the Delta Ballet has 
advanced to a true

What Is ROTC? 

Army ROTC (Reserve 
Officer Training Corps) is a 
program which provides 
college trained officers for the 
U.S. Army, Reserve and 
National Guard. 

There are two ROTC 
programs. The four year 
ROTC program is divided into 
two parts: the basic course and 
the advance course. The basic 
course is usually taken in the 
freshman and sophomore 
years. No military com- 
mitment is incurred during the 
lime, and students may 
withdraw at anytime through 
the end of the second year. 
Some of the subjects covered 
are military history, leadership 
development, and military 
courtesy, disciplines and 

After completing the basic 
course, students who have 
demonstrated officer potential 
ind meet army phvsical 
standards arc eligible to enroll 

in the advance course, which is 
usually taken in the final two 
years of college. Instruction 
includes further leadership 
deveopment, organization and 
management, tactics and 
administration classes. Also, a 
paid six-week advanced camp 
is held during the summer 
between the junior and senior 
years. This camp allows cadets 
to put into practice the 
principles and theories they 
have acquired in the 

The second program, the 
two-year program allows 
cadets to enroll directly in the 
advance course. Students can 
take advantage of this 
program by successfully 
completing a paid six-week 
basic camp. 

Cadets will also receive 
uniforms, textbooks, and a 
living allowance of up to 
$1000 each school year. 

Vickers Chosen For Exchange Program 

By: Jairo Serrato 

Randy Vickers, a business 
graduate student at Nor- 
thwestern, has been selected to 
participate in an exchange 
program to India sponsored 
by the Natchitoches Rotary 

During a recent interview, 
Mr. Vickers said, "The ob- 
jective of the program is to 
spread good will and un- 
derstanding by becoming more 
knowledgeable about other 
cultures." Through talks and 
presentations of the par- 
ticipants to civic clubs, schools 
and other meetings, people will 
become more knowledgeable 
about the Indian country and 

The Rotary Clubs' group

send 6 participants (not

Rotary members) to Southern 
India in January for 30 days. 

The participants will live 
with the Indian Rotary Club 
members and will be exposed 
to many aspects of Indian 
culture. The Natchitoches 
Rotary Club will bear the 
expense of the travel to and 
from India while the receiving 
Rotary District will bear all 
other expenses besides the 
participants' personal ex- 

Mr. Vickers first contacted 
the local Rotary Club and 
then applied to go to India. 
After being interviewed by the 
District Rotary Club, he was 
selected as one of the 6 par- 

"Of course almost anyone 
would like to go on an all 
expenses paid trip to a foreign 
country. In my case, India was 
a special desire. For the past 

two years; I have been vd 
interested in Easteri 
Philosophy. Indian cultureisj 
the heart of this philosophy 
This philosophy is at tf 
opposite end of the pole frot 
Western thinking." 

Also Mr. Vickers is ver 
interested in seeing how Indi, 
is coping with its socia 
problems and advancement! 
"Being interested in com 
puters, I'm curious as to tit- 
extent of computerization ant 
the impact of computers «

Mr. Vickers, currentl; 
employed at the Natchitoche 
Parish Hospital as a cob 
troller, is also pursuing j

have been selected to pat

medieval-renaissance fairs, 
primarily in England, and

According to Joseph A. 
Johnson, Associate Professor

offered a variety of en- 
tertainments and enticements; 
and they were peopled by folks 
from almost every imaginable 
walk of life. Besides booths of 
turkey, meats, pastries and 
drinks, we could expect to 
have games of chance and of 
skill, of brawn and of beauty - 
all fun but sometimes rough 
and raunchy. And the people 
(students) attending such a fair 
might include knights and

Kudos To Eric 

By: Tommy Whitehead 

A familiar face hidden 
behind a scraggly beard will be 
gone from Northwestern at the 
end of this semester. His 
graduation should be noted 
for his contributions have 
been many and will be long 
remembered. Eric Maron has 
also been the type of student 
which our university com- 
munity needs more like. 

He has been involved and 
also interested. Many students 
here are involved in various 
organizations and causes. 
However, Eric's involvement 
goes beyond just being a 
member or worker at the radio 
station or student pursuing a 
college degree. He has been 
interested. Often he has 
questioned why something has 
been done a certain way. And 
those questions have been 
directed toward faculty, 
administrators, the student 
governing organizations, the 
Current Sauce, and fellow 
students. These questions have 
°'ten times not been easily 
answered, but in the same vein 
« has taken a certain type of 
courage on Eric's part in many 
'"stances to ask the questions. 

And Eric has not been one 
J"st to continually ask 
questions. He has sought 
answers and worked toward 
solving problems. 

Perhaps the most evident of 
"' s accomplishments have 
ran" the growth of KNWD 
ha u The histor y o f KNWD 
as been quite remarkable by 
^orthwestern standards. It 
as a student-conceived idea, 
'".dent-developed, student-f- 
an^ and student-operated 
" n mana ged. Eric has 
Ejected really a second 
to ' atl0nof leadership. Prior 
h's tenure as general 

manager, the station had gone 
through the initial phases of 
getting on the air and 
establishing itself. The KNWD 
Eric inherited has matured 
from just a station playing 
rock music to a respectable 
radio station with various 
programming formats and 
features that appeal to a 
number of NSU students. 
Adding news reports and live 
coverage of home football 
games have been two 
significant strides made during 
his tenure at the station. Plus 
the formats of music played 
over the air have been in- 
creased till now at least some 
time during the day there is 
some music played that might 
appeal to nearly anyone. The 
KNWD play by play of the 
Demon football games has 
been innovative. "In- 
novative" is a term which does 
not necessarily offer a positive 
connotation, but it is 
refreshing and change from 
what is heard over regular 
commercial stations. And for 
this creative effort credit must 
be given to the manager as 
well as the announcers in the 
press box. Eric realizes that 
experimentation and change is 
needed; certainly everything 
doesn't work, but the one or 
two ideas that do are worth the 
one or two that fail. That is 
what a campus media should 
be willing to do. 

Eric's contributions should 
not be merely looked upon 
next year as a historical 
footnote; rather they should 
be a challenge to other 
students to continue this 
questioning spirit and desire to 
see things good happen at 
Good luck, Eric!

If I Were Santa Claus 
You Would Get This 

Here it is, the end of another semester, this weekend is the 
Christmas Festival, and starting Monday... FINALS. (That 
word is so mean looking.) 

Anyway, since its the end of the semester, and Christmas is 
coming up, please permit me the liberty of playing Santa Claus. 
I would like to be able to give some people a few things, but 
since 1 really can't, maybe I'll just wish it for them. 

Please remember one thing however, this should be taken 
entirely in jest. Please don't read between the lines, 'cause 
there's nothing there but white space. There are no innuendos, 
implications, or bad feelings associated with this article. It is an 
attempt at end of the semester fun. 

So now, here are my Christmas presents and wishes for the 
good little girls and boys of NSU. 

First on my list is Elise James. Many of you know her as a 
teacher in the department of Office Administration. Many of 
you know her as one of the most hardworking, pro-NSU persons 
ever to walk the face of the earth. In light of her many hours of 
unselfish dedication to NSU and NSU athletics, it's time to give 
something back to her. We have Turpin Stadium, Prather 
Colesium, and Cracker Brown Field. How about the Elise 
James "Not-Quite-a-Memorial-Yet" Fieldhouse. She deserves 

While we are on the subject of sports: for his many dedicated 
years and years of service, not only to the athletes of Nor- 
thwestern, but the people of the community as well, I give Mr. 
Eugene Christmas, NSU's 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 
months a year trainer, a one year vacation at the health resort of 
his choice. While there, he will be able to enjoy hot tubs, saunas, 
and three massages a day from the physical therapist of his 

For Lady Demon basketball coaches Pat Pierson and James 
Smith, who have begun to build a near dynasty here, you get a 
national championship for Christmas. However, you will have 
to wait until March, and the NCAA tournament, to pick up your 

I have a few other Christmas presents and a few wishes to give 

For Dr. Orze. He gets one present and one wish. Being a man 
used to the cold and snow of the north (Massachusetts), I give 
you a white Christmas. And my wish to you is a good 
relationship with the newly elected former governor Edwards. 
(As a matter-of-fact, I wish everybody a good relationship with 
the new governor.) 

Dr. Fraser Snowden gets appointed advisor to the Current 
Sauce, and it is under his tutelage that the Sauce receives its first 
of several Pulitzer Prizes. 

For Christmas 1 give the SUGB Lionel Richie as opening act 
for the Christmas Festival Conert . 

Noting the loss of the only senator who had proposed a bill 
thus far this semester, I give the SGA three new radical senators 
who pledge a bill-a-week until April 1. 

The Department of Journalism gets 128 students, all in- 
terested in print journalism, and William F. Buckley to teach 

I give the NSU Entertainers their First video on both MTV and 
Night Tracks® . 

KNWD gets a weekly list of Billboard Magazine's Hot 100, 
and records accompany that gift. 

The campus gets lights, a sludge free lake, and Wal-Mart 
locks for the girls' dorms. 

Governor-elect Edwin Edwardsgets the first limited-edition, 
artist's concept drawing of that new veterinary school he 
promised us during his last campaign. (There's a nice plot of 
land on the East end of Chaplin's Lake that vou can build it on 

PFM gets Julia Child's newest cookbook and the city of 
Natchitoches gets a new Revlon Factory, to be placed anywhere 
on the Highway 1 by-pass, anywhere between the sewer 
treatenient plant and the Country Pride chicken plant that they 
care to put it. 

For everybody else, 1 give you all 4.0's and a happy Christ- 
mas, and a fun five weeks of vacation. -Joe Cunningham. 

Letters to the Editor 


Dear Editor: 

It is not easy to maintain a 
well-organized weekly 
publication such as a 
newspaper. There are many 
features to include as well as 
deadlines to meet. No group 
of people knows this better 
than the staff of our 
university's newspaper, The 
Current Sauce. The Current 
Sauce could use many im- 
provements: a larger staff who 
would be more willing to 
dedicate themselves to 
working on the newspaper, 
comments from NSU students 
about what features they 
would like to see in the paper, 
and a more-detailed 

The main problem that The 
Current Sauce is presently 
attempting to solve is securing 
a larger, more dedicated staff. 
Students working on the 
newspaper have many 
problems because this task is 
very demanding as well as time 
consuming. As a result, more 
and more students are turning 
to other less demanding ac- 
tivities. Because of this lack of 
a large staff, members of the 
present staff are forced to 
extend their working hours to 
compensate for this loss. One 
consequence of this loss is that 
the small staff tires easily and 
working becomes 
monotonous. Another factor 
is that this staff cannot relate 
to every group of students on 
the campus because they do 
not have enough time to 
discuss matters of importance 
with individual students. The 
students must therefore, 
present their ideas to the staff. 

A second major problem is 
that the students refuse to 
voluntarily present their ideas 
to the staff. Without these 
much needed ideas, The 
Current Sauce suffers because 
it loses readers. A way to 
improve this is for the students 
to write guest editorials and 
features. With the students' 
help, the paper would have 
better, more interesting 

A third major problem is 
that the paper is not detailed 
enough. Even though the 
contents of The Current Sauce 
are well-presented, ad- 
vertisements and sports events 
consume a great portion of the 
paper. If advertisements are 
reduced in size and sports 
events are condensed, then 
The Current Sauce could have 
a larger number of features. 
The quantity of ad- 
vertisements could perhaps 
double if their size is reduced. 
Therefore, the budget would 
increase. With this im- 
provement. The Current Sauce 
would have a sizeable 

These are a few suggestions 
on how to improve The 
Current Sauce. Working for 
the high school or college 
media is demanding. I learned 
this when I joined the staff of 
our NSU yearbook, The 
Potpourri. The problems of 
The Potpourri and The 
Current Sauce are similar. We 
are doing a fine job, con- 
sidering the fact that none of 
us are journalism majors. For 
example, Lisa Williams, the 
editor of The Current Sauce, is 
a business major. Despite all 
of these problems, The 
Current Sauce is holding its 
own. One of the factors that 
hurts this newspaper is the 
criticism that its staff receives 
weekly from NSU students. 
Students should not criticize 
our campus media until they 
have had the opportunity to 
work with a newspaper or 
yearbook staff. Even though 
the job is demanding, we 
enjoy doing it. Working with 
NSU's media gives us a sense 
of self-pride and teaches us the 
value of consideration for 
others. The criticism of The 
Current Sauce is unnecessary. 
If critical students feel that 
they can do a better job, then I 
will advise Lisa Williams and 
the rest of her staff to step 
aside and make room for these 
students to attempt to attack 
this challenge with more effort 
and enthusiasm.

Dear Editor, 

A funny thing happened in 
the financial aid office a week 
or two ago. I had applied to 
receive a student loan. A 
couple of weeks after I had 
sent in the proper forms I got 
back in the mail a nice green 
form to take to the financial 
aid officer at Northwestern. 
Mr. Faust, after looking over 
my form told me that I was 
not eligible to receive even one 
penny of aid. My father is 
retired and receives less thasn 
$17,000 a year and has a 
family of four to support. 
Granted, I am a graduate 
assistant, but in order for me 
to start school this semester, I 
had to borrow the money from 
a friend. I simply wanted the 
loan to be able to get on my

feet and pay my friend back. 
Mr. Faust told me that my 
father made too much money 
in addition to my assistan- 
tship^ I know of several 
students whose parents are a 
lot better off than mine and 
have assistantships that do 
receive aid. I am miffed only 
because these people who do 
receive aid do a lot of things 
with their money including 
putting down payments on 
cars and buying motorcycles. I 
think that it is a shame that 
someone like me who 
genuinely needs the money is 
unable to receive any. I found 
out that Northwestern has 
money left over in their 
student loan fund at the end of 
the year. My question is what 
happens to this money? 
Another question I have is 
why do they call student loans 
"guaranteed" if a student is 
not guaranteed to get one? 

Jackie Calandro 

Dear Editor, 

I must admit that Joe's 
creativity in writing editorials 
and news articles is most 
refreshing. This letter is 
written only because his 
editorial sparked a flame in 
this person's pen. 

I feel for you Joe and for all 
of those students whose names 
will not fit on the class card 
due to the computer punch 
holes or those of you who do 
now know what to write after 
"Expect to graduate." I know 
your frustrations well. I too, 
am a student and find the 
same problems. However, I 
would like to share with you 
and the entire student body 
some of the frustrations that I 
face each day while working as 
a graduate assistant in the 
Registrar's Office. 

I have had my job in the 
Registrar's Office for two 
years and I am continually 
amazed and amused by the 
studetns at NSU. I often hear 
that "Those poeple in the 
Registrar's Office don't know 
what they are doing" or 
"gosh, they sure are slow with 
their work." Allow me to 
share a few of my pet peeves 
with you. First, If a student 
comes in to order a transcript 
before 2:00 p.m. he will be 
able to pick it up at 3:30 that 
day. Otherwise the transcript 
will be able to be picked up the 
following day at 3:30. You 
would not believe how many 
students come back and hour 
or two early and expect that 
their transcript be ready. Anna 
is our transcript clerk and with 
the help of her student 
workers she is able to get the 
(cont. on pg. 5)1 

The Current Sauce, Tuesday November 29, 1983 

Organizations m 5 

(cont. from pg. 4) 
requests prepared by 3:30 each 
day. Please, when told to 
come back at 3:30 do so. 
These people do not have time 
to drop everything that they 
are doing and get your 
transcript at your beckon 
request. Also, do not wait 
until the last minute to order 
your transcript to be mailed to 
such and such a place by 
tomorrow. Give Anna at least 
three days notice in order that 
she may have it mailed on the 
day that you need it to be. 

Second, I am of the opinion 
that a lot of the foreign 
students think that they own 
Northwestern and can come 
into the office and tell us how 
to do our jobs. Some of them 
are rather rude, persistent, and 
impatient. Mrs. Jennings not 
only is the foreign student 
advisor, but she works with 
the Business canndidates along 
with other various jobs in the 
office. If for some reason you 
need to see Mrs. Jennings, she 
will be available to see you at 
3:30 each day unless she 
otherwii; specifies, some 
students will stand there and 
argue with me about when 
they will see her. I find no 
relief until I grab my super- 
visor, Mrs. Williams for her 
help. With the Christmas 
vacation coming up, I know 
that a lot of our foreign 
students want to go home. If 
you need an 1-20, please come 
in and order it now, if you 
wait until the end of the 
semester, you may not get one. 
Mrs. Jennings and her student 
worker do not work miracles. 

The "Pet peeve of the year 
award "goes out to all of you 
who cannot read. It is beyond 
me how so many NSU 
students graduate yet cannot 
follow simple instructions. For 
example: The procedure for 
advanced registration was 
printed on the inside front 
cover of each Spring schedule, 
was published in the Current 
Sauce and was even taped to 
the doors of the Registrar's 
Office. Step three stated that 
in order to pick up your 
Packet, you must bring your 
signed trial schedule card with 
you to the office. If I had a 
dime for each time I had to 
send a student back to their 
advisor to get a signature or to 
get their trial schedule card, I 
would be rich and would be 
able to quit school. The same 
thing applies to the drop/add 
card. If you would read the 
instructions on the back you 
would not have to run around 
to find your advisor or in- 
structor for their signature. 

My fellow NSU students, 
>ou totally amaze me with 
your "knowledge of the 
system." You might have been 
"ere for a long time, but do 
not think that you know it all. 
Please take heed to this letter 
and think of all the people that 
work for you in order to help 

make your years at Nor- 
thwestern more enjoyable. 
Read instructions and follow 
directions-I know that my job 
will be much easier if you do. 

For your information the 
Expect to graduate line of the 
senior graudation card should 
be filled in with a date. 
"Expect to graduate Spring 
1984." Michelle Minor 

Dear Michelle, 

I apologize if you took 
offense at what I said last 
week. I assure you that 
everything I wrote was written 
tongue firmly planted in 
cheek. I know both of the 
registrar's that we've had here 
in the past few years very well. 
I have nothing but the utmost 
respect for not only them, but 
the way they do their jobs. I 
would not for a minute, at 
tempt to criticize them for the 
way they do those jobs, 
especially not with all the 
improvements in the system in 
the last few years. Neither 
would I criticize any of their 
staff. I know only too well 
how valuable a good staff can 

^Again, I apologize if you 
took offense at what I wrote, 1 
promise you that it was not a 
criticism, but only an attempt 
at some semester ending 
humor that you apparently 
took the wrong way. -Joe.

Taylor Scores 30 
But LSU Wins 84-80 

The Lady Demons dropped 
another heartbreaker here in 
Prather Colesium last night to 
the ninth ranked team in the 
nation, the LSU Ben Gals by 
an 84-80 score before a rather 
large turnout. 

The Lady Demons showed 
why they are definitely a team 
to be reckoned with by coming 
from 20 points behind in the 
second half to almost overtake 
the Ben Gal team. 

The game started out with 
the Lady Demons rushing out 
to a 6-0 lead when Lisa Carter, 
Teressa Thomas, and Lonnie 
Banks all hit their first shots of 
the game. 

The Ben Gals tied it at 8-8 
on a Madeline Doucet 10-foot 
jump shot with 15:35 
remaining in the half. 

LSU went ahead to stay at 
14-12 on a Rhonda Hawthorne 
steal and layup moments later. 

The Lady Demons stayed 
close the rest of the first half, 
pulling to within three points 
when Tracy Taylor hit a short 
jumper from the lane with just 
over six minutes left in the first 

The first half ended with the 
Ben Gals up front by eight, 38- 

The second half belonged to 
the Lady Demons. 

After the Ben Gals went up 
by 20 ponts on a three point 
play by Jean Delahaye, the 
Lady Demons outscored the 
LSU team in a 26-11 spurt to 
pull to within three points at 
72-69 on a Teressa Thomas 
length of the court drive and 

The Northwestern faithful 
sensed an upset of the highly 
ranked Ben Gals, but tonight, 
in spite of the outstanding 
performance of the lady 
Demons, it wasn't meant to 
be. Bui the Lady Demons 
made dang sure it was going to 
be close. 

Tracv Tavlor hit both ends 

of a one and one free throw to 
make it a three point game 
once again with 2:35 left. 

LSU increased the lead to 
six points with just 1:33 
remaining on a Hawthorne 
jump shot from the top of the 

Thomas responded with a 
radar shot of her own top of 
the key to make it a four point 

The Lady Demons made it a 
one point game when Taylor 
hit a two foot jump shot to 
make it 81-80. Unfortunately 
for the Lady Demons, that 
was as far as close as they 
would get. LSU All-American 
Joyce Walker hit both ends of 
a critical one and one free 
throw to put the LSU squad in 
front, and Delahaye hit the 
front end of a pair of free 
throws to make the final score 

Leading the way for the 
Lady Demons was their All- 
American candidate, senior 
center Tracy Taylor who hit 12 
of 19 field goal attempts and 
six of seven free throws for a 
game high 30 points. Taylor 
also grabbed 14 rebounds in 
perhaps one of the finest all- 
around performances of any 
Lady Demon ever. 

Senior forward Lisa Carter 
hit 17 points amd pulled down 
six rebounds for NSU and 
sophomore point guard 
Teressa Thomas, who hit 
several clutch shots down the 
stretch, pitched in 15 points. 
Lonnie Banks, Thomas' 
running mate in the backcourt 
had 10 points for the Lady 

Thomas dished out a game 
high seven assists for Nor- 
thwestern and Banks had four

Demons Whip NLU 
In Season Final 13-9 

Northwestern upset 
nationally ranked Northeast in 
a season ending game, 13-9, to 
knock the Indians out of the 1- 
AA playoffs, and giving 
Demon head coach Sam' 
Goodwin his third straight win 
in this, his first year at the 
helm of NSU football. 

As was the story all season, 
it was a stingy NSU defense 
that more than anything, won 
the game for the Demons. 

NSU came up with the first 
legitimate scoring opportunity 
of the game by driving from 
their own 1 1 down to the NLU 
20 in the first quarter, but a 
Benny Brouillette kick was 
wide left. 

NLU came right back on the 
next possession and made the 
score 3-0 on a Jessie Garcia 33- 
yard field goal. 

It was a defensive struggle 
the rest of the half as neither 

Northwestern's Elliott rushed tor 96 yards on 
Dawson rushes for a first only eight caries to lead 
down Saturday night the Demons past the 
against NLU. Dawson Indians 13-9. 

team could muster a point. 

On their first possession of 
the second half, Brouillette 
nailed a 25-yard field goal to 
tie the score. On the very next 
series, after an NLU punt, 
Brouillette nailed his second 
field goal of the night, this one 
from 30 yards out. 

The Demon punt team put 
the game out of reach when 
NSU punter Mike Crow 
bounced a punt off the head of 
the Northeast return man, and 
Leon Carr pounced on the 
loose ball at the 5-yard line for 
the Demons. 

Senior fullback Chuck 
Dupree then put the Demons 
up to stay on a power play 
from one yard out and NSU 
went out front to stay 13-3. 

Northeast tried to get back 
in the game, marching 78- 
yards in only 1:52, but a 
missed two-point conversion 
after a touchdown left the 
Indians behind 13-9, and the 
Demon defense made sure 
they stayed there. 

Northeast threatened twice 
more when both Dupree and 
sophomore quarterback 
Wayne Van fumbled the ball 
away, but the NSU defense 
turned back both scoring 

Goodwin praised the work 
of the defensive backs and 
linebackers Ernest Crittenden 
and Gary Reasons. "I thought 
the defensive secondary played 
well, Crittenden and Reasons 
also played well," the Demon 
mentor said. 

For the Demons, senior All- 
American Gary Reasons ended 
his college career with 13 
tackles and Crittenden added 
while Tim Ledet and Anthony 
Jackson each contributed 
seven stops. 

Dawson, the suprise of the 
year for the Demons, finished 
the night with 96 yards on but 
eight carries. Frank Graham 
had 55-yards for the Demons. 

NSU ended the year by 
winning its last three 
ballgames to wind up 4-7. 

Indians Scalp Demons 
96-66 In Season Opener 

It could be a long season. 
The Demons, a young, 
inexperienced group, suffered 
a 96-66 blowout at the hands 
of in-state rival Northeast in 
their first game of the year 
before a small crowd in 
Prather Colsium last night. 

The loss to the Indians was 
the second worst loss in the for 
the Demons in a series that 
dates back to 1951. Th worst 
was a 112-77 loss in 1977. 

Trailing by 15 points in the 
first half, NSU rallied behind 
the shooting of freshman 
Kenneth Moody and reserves 
Sylvester Smith and Fred 

The triumvirate turned a 32- 
17 NLU lead in a one-point 
halftime lead, 38-37. 

The temporary momentum 
was lost in the second half 
however. Center Robert 
Anthony hit one of two foul 
shots, but from then on it was 
all down hill. 

"We lost our composure," 
Demon head coach Wayne 
Yates said. "Both on offense 
and defense. We let them 
inside for second and third 

"The inexperience was the 
reason for our loss in com- 

posure," Yates concluded. 

While Northwestern 
digressed, Northeast, led by 
Bobby Joe Doublass, Gerald 
Morris and Bruce Williams 
poured it on. 

NSU didn't help itself by 
committing four fouls and 
eight turnovers in a three 
minute stretch last in the 
game. NLU scored 12 quick 
points in that stretch. 

Morris and Williams led five 
NLU players in double figures 
wth 14 points. 

Moody and Jerry Harris led 
the Demons with 12 points, 
and Smith and Charles Nash 
had 10.

Kansas Dial Classic 

Lady Demons Lose Tough 
One In Dial Classic 79-78 

The Lady Demons held an 
outstanding North Carolina 
Tar Heel basketball team at 
bay for most of the night 
before dropping a heart- 
breaking 69-68 season opening 
game in the first round of the 
Kansas Dial Classsic. 

The Lady Demons 
dominated the first half, 
jumping out to a 32-22 lead 
before settling for a 36-30 lead 
at the halftime buzzer. 

North Carolina came back 
in the second half jumping 
ahead 64-61 before Lisa Carter 
hit a lay-up and Lonnie Banks 
cashed in a pair of free throws 
to give the Lady Demons the 
lead 65-64 with 2:57 left to 

The Tar Heels moved to 
within one point, 68-67 with 

42 seconds left, and would 
have gone ahead with 27 
seconds left had not forward 
Kanti Killian missed the front 
end of a one-and-one free 

The Tar Heels fouled Carter 
with 17 seconds left, but the 5- 
10 senior missed the front end 
of a one-and-one. North 
Carolina grabbed the rebound 
and waited for the last shot 
which Pam Hammond gunned 
in to give the Tar Heels the 

Senior center Tracy Taylor 
paced a balanced NSU scoring 
attack with 16 points and 11 
rebounds. Banks had 13 points 
and Carter and point guard 
Teressa Thomas canned 12 

North Carolina, which 

ended last season as the 18th- 
ranked team in the nation, was 
paced by All-American 
candidate Tresa Brown with 
17 points and 1 1 rebounds. 

The Lady Demons whipped 
North Carolina in every of- 
fensive statistic except 
rebounds, and therein lay the 
story of the ballgame. 

The Tar Heels scored 16 of 
their 69 points on second and 
third shots off the glass, 
thanks to a huge rebounding 
margin of 22. 

It was just a case of first 
game jitters for the Lady 
Demons. They led by six 
points at the half, in spite of 
shooting poorly from the 

Lady Demon coach James 
Smith said that in spite of the 
loss, everyone played well. 

"Linda Grayson and Annie 
Harris both played well," he 
said, "and Tracy Taylor had a 
great all around game. 
Teressa Thomas shot well 
from the outside too." 

Defensively, Lonnie Banks 
played about as well as anyone 
could play, especially against 
such stiff competition. 

Kansas Hands Lady Demons 
Second One Point Loss 74-73 

The Lady Demons lost their 
second one point game of the 
prestigous Dial Classic, this 
time to the host Kansas Lady 
Jayhawks, by a 74-73 score. 

As was the case in the first 
game against North Carolina, 
the Lady Demons led 
throughout much of the game, 
before fouls turned the contest 
to Kansas' favor. 

The Lady Demons went up 
by a 22-12 count at the 
midway point of the first half, 
when Teressa Thomas rifled 
home a 20-foot shoot from the 

The two teams traded 
buckets for most of the rest of 
the half before Kansas battled 
back to within four points at 
39-35. With five seconds left in 
the half, freshman Sandra 
Pugh made an eight-footer to 
Put the Lady Demons up by 
six, 41-35. 

The second half started 
when Angie Snider hit a two- 
root hook shot that brought 
Kansas to within four points, 

but the Lady Demons reeled 
off eight straight points to go 
ahead by a 49-37 score, their 
biggest lead of the night. 

Kansas battled back and 
scored eight straight on their 
own, and finally took the lead 
for good when Barbera 
Adkins sank a pair of free 

The loss dropped the Lady 
Demons to 0-2 heading into a 
Monday night encounter with 
the 9th-ranked LSU Ben Gals. 

In addition to Grayson's 14 
boards, Tracy Taylor added 
nine. For the second straight 
night, Taylor was the leading 
scorer, this time she gunned in 
18. Grayson and fellow 
freshman Annie Harris had 13 
points apiece as the only other 
Lady Demons in double 

Thomas dished out a team 
high six assists and Taylor 
added three blocked shots. 
Annie Harris had four steals 
for the Lady Demons . 

The story of the game 

seemed to center around the 
free throw line. Playing in 
their home colesium, the Lady 
Jayhawks went to the line 34 
times while making 22 of 
them. Conversely, the Lady 
Demons went to the line only 
23 times and made 13. 

The Lady Demons led by 12 
at one point, and like the 
North Carolina game, were up 
by six at the half. But thei 
second half belonged to 
Kansas, their home crowd, 
and the referees. The Lady 
Jayhawks, playing in their 
home coliseum made use of 
their pep band, cheerleaders, 
and students, in trying to 
intimidate the Lady Demons. 
The Lady Jayhawks also made 
more free throws than the 
Lady Demons even shot, and 
this was the overiding factor in 
the game. 

The game became a physical 
type contest and the officials 
allowed alot of extra pushing 
and shoving. 

Individually for the Lady 
Demons, it was Linda 
Grayson with a big day on the 
boards as she swept 14 off the 
glass. Defensive specialist Kim 
Paulk also received the praise 
of the Lady Demon coaching 
staff for her play in the game.

UK5th Wins I-M 
Super Bowl 12-7 

It took 38 minutes and 10 
seconds, but Un Kappa 5th 
finally pulled out the win, a 
12-7 defeat of arch-rival 
Christian Students in the 
women's division Super Bowl 
at Harry "Rags" Turpin 

Like the men's game, this 
game turned into a defensive 

Stacy Johnson intercepted a 
Cindy Berry pass with 16:15 
left in the first half on a fourth 
and 8 at the 28-yard line. 

Exactly four minutes later, 

it was Vern Guidroz' turn for 
UK5th, and she intercepted a 
Christian Student's pass to 
thwart a scoring drive 

Christian Students score the 
first points of the second half 
on a Cindy Wigley 5-yard run. 
Wigley also ran in the point 
after attempt, and CS led 7-0. 

With 3:15 left, Stephany 
Washington made it a 7-6 
game on a 60-yard pass 
reception from Cindy Berry. 

Moments later, Renee 
Richard became an instant 
hero when she intercepted a 
CS pass and ran it in 23-yards 
for the winning touchdown. 

Christian Students tried to 
go ahead, but couldn't move 
the ball the required space in 
the time left. 

Steelers Down 
Kappa Sigma 

David Reynolds hit Walter 
Pinkston with a 23-yard 
touchdown pass with only 11 
seconds remaining in the game 
to give the Independent 
champion Steelers n 12-6 
victory over the Sig Dogs of 
Kappa Sigma. 

In a mild suprise, the game 
turned out to be a defensive 
struggle on the wide Turpin 
Stadium field. 

The Sigs struck first on a 
Randy Bonnette to Richard 
DeVargas 12-yard touchdown 
pass. The point after attempt 

failed, but the Sigs had a 6-0 

It was back and forth ball 
the rest of the way until the 
Steelers drove down to the 
Kappa Sigma 8-yard line. 

Russel Bienvenu thwarted a 
Steeler touchdwon by in- 
tercepting a David Reynolds 
pass and returning it 23-yards 
to the 31 beyre time ran out in 
the first half. 

In the second half, Reynolds 
hit Jeff Bailey with 14:21 left 
in the game to knot the score 
at 6-6. 

It was a seesaw game until 
Reynolds hit Pinkston with 11 
seconds left to win the game 
for the Steelers.

Library Hurt Worst 

NSU Budget Slashed 

By Angela Kow 

The Eugene P. Watson 
Memorial Library was hit hard 
by the 2 percent budget cut 
recently enforced upon 
Northwestern and other 
universities throughout the 

The cut has cost Nor- 
thwestern $327,230, much of 
which will be absorbed by the 

The cut will cost the librarv 
an estimated $182,000. The 
ordering of reference materials 
such as books and periodicals 
will be directly affected. 
Deficiency of reference 
materials could hurl NSU 
during accreditation reviews. 

For this reason, Dr. William 
C. Buchanan, library director, 
is "concerned for the 
Also affected by the cut is 
the attrition fund. Money that 
would be paid as salaries for 
university employees supplies 
the attrition fund when the 
positions are left vacant. An 
estimated $146,260 will be 
absorbed by this fund. The 
rest of the cut will come from 
funds used for equipment. 

Dr. T.P. Southerland, vice 
president for academic affairs, 
noted that the cut will not 
affect the university on the 
academic level. 

He and Dr. Buchanan 
expressed optimism that most 
of the cut could come from 
attrition. A reassessment of 
the estimates will be made in 
early April to determine the 
exact amount having to come 
from the library.

Governor Dave Treat's 
across-the-board budget cuts 
will not affect Northwestern as 
much as originally thought. 

E.j: Trichc, Vice-President 
for Fiscal Affairs, explained: 
"We told the stale that we 
simply could not handle the 
original 5.8 percent reduction 
without teacher layoffs. The 
Board later revised the figures, 
based on each school's needs. 
Northwestern's final cut was 2 
percent, or $327,230." 

Both Louisiana Tech and 
Northeast Louisiana 
University had higher culs, lie 

Had (lie original 5.8 pcrcen!

have been cut by nearly 

Three areas were cut in ihe 
budget: Attrition (noi filling a 
position previously budgeted) 
library materials (see related 
story), and equipment. 

"Insurance money from 
property lost in the October 
1982 lire which destroyed 
Caldwell Hall can help make- 
up the difference," Trichc 
added. "Overall, both

$10,000 Donated Bus Terminal Relocates ^ 

For Scholarship 

The family of the late 
Sylvan W. Nelken of Nat- 
chitoches has contributed 
$10,000 to the Northwestern 
Foundation for the 
establishment of an 
agriculture scholarship in 
memory of the former NSU 
professor and dean. 

The donation was presented 
recently by Nelken's widow, 
Mrs. Lennie Dixon Nelken, 
and his children, Mrs. John 
Woodyard, Mrs. Catherine 
Bienvenu and Sam Nelken of 
Natchitoches, and Mrs. T.E. 
Owen of Helotes, Tex. 

Nelken, who died in Sep- 
tember of 1983, joined 
Northwestern as an assistant 
professor of agriculture during 
the 1935-36 academic year. He 
served as chairman of the 
Department of Agriculture 
from 1941 to 1958, the year he 
was appointed dean of ad- 
ministration at NSU. 

Open Position! 

The Student Union Governing Board will 
elect a representative at large on Mon., Feb. 6. 
Applications may be obtained from Rm. 214 of 
the Student Union.

Nelken, who was born in 
Natchitoches, retired as dean 
in 1966. In the Spring of 1983, 
Northwestern bestowed upon 
him the honorary title of dean 

A member of Phi Beta 
Kappa, the NSU professor and 
dean was educated at Nor- 
thwestern, the University of 
Southwestern Louisiana and 
Iowa State University. He 
taught vocational agriculture 
in the Crowley area before 
moving to Northwestern. 

Sam Nelken, an attorney in 
Natchitoches who presented 
the contribution to NSU 
president Dr. Joseph J. Orze 
on behalf of the family 
members, said his father was 
"extremely interested in 
agriculture, and he was vitally 
interested in Northwestern. 
His family always came first, 
but his involvement with 
Northwestern came next."

By Lucy LeBlanc 

Ever wanted to audition for 
that really great production 
your theater department was 
doing, but were too nervous? 
Well, I just found out that it is 
possible to live through 

Not only possible, but 
actually rather probable. It's 
too bad I discovered this fact 
so late-perhaps I could have 
been a great actress. But then 
again, maybe not. 

Nervousness didn't seem to 
be so much of a problem for 
the talented , brave people 
who tried out in Theater West 
on Jan. 24 for "I'm Getting 
My Act Together And Taking 
It On The Road," directed by 
Ray Schexnider. In fact, 
prepared and confident 
Bonnie McNeill feels that "a 
little bit of nervousness is 
good- it gives you energy." 
(Although I'm sure that her 
thoughts are true, nervousness 
always took over me before I 
got to the energy part.) 

"The first thing that hits 
you is you're scared, you're 
tense. It's a beautiful feeling- 
the adrenalin's flowing. When 
it's over, you get down-like 
falling off of a chair. You get 
depressed-then you forget 
about it. Once you get on 
stage, and hear the applause, 
it's worth it," says Judy 
Miller, a second semester 
freshman theater major. 

For some people, auditions 
af e worth the experience 
alone. "If i make it, great, 
b "t if I don't, I'll have the 
experience behind me," says 
°awn Brummett, a drama 
major at the Louisiana School 
'or Math, Science, and the 

Tanya Reichard also values 
'he experience, yet admits that 
'noughts like, " What if I mess 
U P- ' do surface. Tanya a 
v °'ce major at LSMSA who 
accompanied herself with the 
guitar for her tryout, totally 
enchanted Mr. Schexnider. 

Robin Gunter also im- 
pressed Schexnider with her 
'°tal lack of inhibition and her 
"°nesty, which are traits that 
, ch «nider looks for. He also 
, oks for intelligence: 

that" e ' S "° substitute for 
Seven women tried out for

jj 1 'he rear of the room, I 
oticed the sunlight trying to 
ickle through the window 
"rough what appeared to be 
"oe polish that had been there 
or years. The rest of the 
°om seemed as if under 
instruction or should be. 

The women went over a 
piece of music before audition 
time. Chris Louisell, who 
played James Leeds in 
"Children of A Lesser God," 
sat in the fourth row. 
Smoking a cigarette, he slowly 
mouthed and signed the words 
to the catchy tune. My spine 
shivered as each woman sang. 
I'm not sure if it was the 
emotion of the voices or the 

crispness of the air. 

The suspense from the time 
of auditions to final casting is 
now over. Many 
congratulations to Robin 
Gunter, Betsy Corley, and 
Shannon Conner for surviving 
and succeeding. Lots of luck 
to the performers, Ray 
Schexnider and crew on this 
production, which, by the 
way, opens on Monday, Feb.

Two-Way Signs? 

Four bills were passed during Monday night's 
session of NSU's Student Government Association, 
three of which are traffic-related. 

One of these bills requested that the "ONE 
WAY" regulation in the parking lot of Caddo 
dormitory be changed so that it is not in effect 
between the hours of 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. 
Monday thru Thursday and from 4:00 p.m. Friday 
to 7:00 a.m. Monday. Students have criticized this 
regulation for some time now because of its im- 
practicality during low traffic hours. 

Another proposal asked that parking spaces in 
the lot behind Varnado dormitory be marked off. 
The old paint (or what remains of it) is almost 
impossible to see. 

Students residing in Natchitoches dormitory are 
well aware of the parking lot's poor condition. A 
third SGA bill requested that the administration of 
Northwestern take action to repair or reconstruct 
this parking lot. 

The fourth bill called for an alteration of the 5- 
day period after classes begin, during which 
students may register for credit. The SGA 
requested that a 10-class-day period to register for 
credit be adopted. Senators felt that more time was 
needed to determine if extra courses would be 
necessary to maintain full-time status if once 
previously scheduled courses have been dropped. 

Man's Worst Enemy? 

We read with a certain degree of interest the 
letter from Wayne Johnson that appears on this 
page. Sunday night's movie on ABC, entitled 
AMAZONS, added an ironic note to the situation. 
The movie was about an old sisterhood of sorts 
who were dedicated to the idea that men were evil 
and should be controlled by women. By no means 
do we agree with Johnson's letter, especially since 
the female members of our staff enjoy wearing 
jeans. Do feel free to comment on his accusations.

As we look at the start of 
another semester, with holiday 
left-overs and hangovers not 
so far behind us, a few 
thoughts come to mind about 
the coming days of books, 
papers, and assignments. It's 
not going to be loads of fun, 
thrills, and excitement, but 
you know that already. 

However, a lot will be, or 
can be, accomplished and 
attained in this semester. 
We've paid our money; it's 
time to settle in and face 
what's coming. Yet, most of 
us will evade it at any cost 
whenever we can. Since we 
have paid our fees, we may 
need to pause at this point and 
consider just what we're 
getting into and why. 

College is, more or less, a 
contractual agreement. You 
oay your money and expect 
certain services in return. It's 
interesting that we hear 
complaints so often about the 
university's end of the deal: 
cafeteria food is terrible; 
curriculum too relentless; 
teachers/textbooks dull, on 
and on; but teachers can 
seldom expect seriousness on 
the part of the students. 

Consider briefly just what 

your teachers are getting from 
you out of the "contract." 
Money, sure, but creativity? 
Individual thinking? Or, for 
that matter, thought of any 
sort? Do you feel a sense of 
responsibility for fulfilling 
your side of the education 

"Responsibility" has as 
part of its root, "response." 
The key to responsibility in the 
learning process is response by 
the learner to what is being 
taught. Be warned, however, 
that an uninformed response is 
a futile one. Get interested, 
listen, and actually try to do 
what the teacher asks of you. 

Keep in mind that teachers 
are merely guides. As fishing 
guides can only show tourists 
where to go and how to go for 
the catch, teachers can only 
show students the way to the 
books, the facts. Students 
must be responsible for 
catching the fish. 

Consider yourself: Have 
you been waiting for a 
complete knowledge of 
computer science/French to 
drop into your lap, an end-of- 
the-semester boon from the 
teacher? In the end, in order to 
learn, one submits himself to 
education and not vice-versa. 

I suppose I'm saying that it 
all boils down to attitude ... 
the kind of attitude that makes 
people say, "Mr. So-and-So 
gave me a D in his class!" and 
not, "I made a D." This 
attitude is also recognizable in 
other comments: "This is a 
dumb class; I don't need 
this!" "That teacher thinks 
I'm going to read this 
assignment --'ha!" and "This 

is different from anything I've 
ever heard, so I'm not going to 
pay any attention to it. It'j 

Attitudes such as these can 
have major effects on out 
lives. Because of our attitudes 
toward required curriculum, 
we avoid the information m 
could be absorbing. The word 
"wisdom" could become 
obsolete with our generatioa 
To view the situation in 
another light, our attitudes are 
deterring the possibility of the 
ultimate defense weapon: 
Knowledge and logical 
thinking provide an incredible 
base for the protection of whai 
we hold dear. 

And, as Thomas Hennj 
Huxley once said, "The onlj 
medicine for suffering, crime] 
and all other woes I 
mankind, is wisdom." Thina 
about it. Catch yourself] 
before your attitude slips out. 

We all know just how ea 
pensive a college education <j 
today. It's not easy for mam 
folks to scrape the moms 
together. Books arj 
outrageously priced and goinj 
up every semester. No, ~M 
can't bring the costs down, bw 
we can get our money's wortM 
The problem is that we don't 
always remember that the deal 
begins and ends with us. 

The responsibility of gettin 
our money's worth is ours i 
alone. Until we realize this 
tuition and fees are a waste 1 
money, classes a waste i 
time, and both a waste ( 
talents and abilities.

graduate, now sees classt

Letter to the Editor- 

Feminism Cause Of Society's Woes 

To the Editor: 

Militant feminism is 
destroying America as the 
scourge of decency and 
civility. In the last two 
decades we have seen a 
dramatic increase in broken 
homes, spouse and child abuse 
and sex crimes, which has just 
about kept pace with women's 
decision to wear the pants. 

Jude 16 in the Bible 
prophesized of militant 
feminists as follows: "These 
are murmurers, complainers, 
walking after their own lusts; 

and their mouth speaketh 
great swelling words, having 
men's persons in admiration 
because of advantage." 

Deuteronomy 22:5 is God's 
admonition against uni-sex 
and Jude 6:16 is the shameful 
result. Jesus strove against 
feminism and even said to His 
mother: "Woman, what have 
I to do with thee?" And for 
his crucifiers He said: 
"Father, forgive them, for 
they know not what they do." 

We can rebuild America 
with only true word of God, 
the 1611 King James Bible, or 

we can continue to let TV hyl 
lead us to the slaughter, 
our salvation can only cotf 
about through believing tW 
Bible prophecy was meant ft 
the latter times - NOW

Meet The Lady Demon 

Head Coach 
Pat Pierson 

At the start of [he season, the NCAA newsletter 
predicted that the Lady Demons would be TOUGH. 
What it didn't say was that they would be just plain 
unlucky there for a while too. 

The Lady Demons started the season by playing in 
the prestigious Kansas Dial Classic. They lost both 
games, one to North Carolina and one to Kansas by 
one point each. 

After reboundng to whip McNeesc here, they lost 
their next game by one point. After No. 1 ranked La. 
Tech beat them soundly, the Lady Demons lost by 
six, four, and two points, in that order. Eight losses. 
Four by one point, and three by an average of four 

Bui they didn't give up. Since then, they have 
played like a team possessed, and have destroyed 
everything standing in their path. 

Hopefully, this article will give you a short, but 
sweet, closer look at the Ladies, and one gentleman, 
who make up that team and coaching staff. 

She took over six years ago. And after a 12-15 first 
season, Lady Demon head coach Pat Pierson has 
guided her girls to an 84-49 record in the years since. 
A former Lady Demon herself, Pierson has taken 
Northwestern women's basketball to nationally 
recognized powerhouse status. 

Pierson has been guiding Lady 
Demon basketball steadily upward. 
In 1980-81, Pierson led the girls to 
the AIAW Regional tournament. 
Last year, after a 16-9 record that 
included wins over powerhouses like 
Northeast and lllinios St., and 
losses to Alabama and LSU, the 
Lady Demons were just barely 
passed over in select ion for the 
NCAA tournament. 
Pierson was named Coach of the Year in Louisiana 
by the Louisiana Sports Wriers Association in 1981- 
82, the year her girls went 18-7. 

During her playing career at NSU, where she was 
a three year starter, Pierson led the team in assists 
and proved she could score by swishing through 463 
points in an injury shortened career. 

Married to Natchitoches banker Joe Pierson Jr., 
the Lady Demon coach has six "children" of the 
four legged variety; Dusty, BJ, Sam, Missy, Blaze, 
and Samantha. 

When she came here last fall, everybody thought 
Lonnie Banks was just another pretty face. Now, less 
than two years later, the 5-7 guard for the Lady 
Demons has proved that she's more than another 
pretty face. She's a durn good baketball player. 

Only a sophomore, Lonnie has 
started every game that she's been in 
for the Lady Demons. Las) year she 
averaged 10.1 points a game and 
almost six rebounds an outing, in 
addition to 57 steals. Now, after a 
slow start, she's back up to 11.8 
points a game, including a career 
high of 24 against McNeese in her Lonnie Banks 
last outing. 

Last year Lonnie scored in double figures in 16 of 
her 25 games. This year, she picked up right where 
she left off and her cat-quick move, is one of the 
reasons why she's at the top of the steals department. 

Lonnie's high school teammate, and now a 
valuable reserve for the Lady Demons, Yolanda 
Brown is known more for her defense than for her 
offense. In high school at P.G.T. 
Beauregard in St. Bernard, La., 
Yolanda won the best defensive 
award her senior year. Now in her 
second year with the Lady Demons, Jp 
Yolanda, whose season high was &§ ^^i, 
three points against Neva-Reno, is ,f I CC 
inserted in defensive situations. Yolanda Brown 

Yolanda has the distinction of being the only Lady 
Demon never to miss a free throw in a basketball 
season (1982-83), and this year is shooting 1.000 
from the field.

Ass't Coach 
James Smith 

Some call him "Doc", but most know him as 
coach. ..he is the Lady Demon assistant basketall 
coach, recruiter emeritus, and strategic tactician. ..he 
is of course, James Smith. 

Now in his fourth year, Lady 
Demon assistant coach James Smith 
is the main reason why the Lady 
Demons have all that talent on their 
bench. He knows the recruiting 
game, and he knows it well. Smith 
pulled off one of the biggest 
recruiting coups in the nation last 
year by swiping all three of Campti 
High School's All-Staters-girls that 
everybody wanted, but only 
Northwestern got. 

Since Smith joined the club back in 1980, the Lady 
Demon basketball record is 65-32. Smith also 
doubles as the Lady Demons softball coach. Last 
year his girls ran off with 19 wins against just 10 
defeats, and pulled one of the upsets of the year by 
defeating eventual national champion, Emporia 

Smith played basketball at Centenary College for 
two years and was a letter-winner for four years for 
the Gents. He is married to the former Susan Barron 
_and the y have one daughter, Angela. 

She's one of only three seniors on the team. But 
when she's gone, Lisa Carter, a 5-10 forward from 
Ft. Walton Beach, Florida will be one of the toughest 
Lady Demons to replace in several years 

Lisa has had a spectacular last 10 

games, including be named MVP in 

the Lady Pack Classic in Reno, 

Nevada. Her high of 25 points 

against Lamar was a career high. 

Current Sauce Sports, page 2 


Lisa Carter 

Lisa has been playing well enough to average 13.9 
points a game and 6.2 rebounds an outing, both good 
enough for second place on the team. But perhaps 
her most important statistic is her field goal per- 
centage where she is shooting a team leadine S63 
from the field. 

She was a high school AU-American and one of the 
mot highly sought after players in the nation last 
year. Her name is Linda Grayson and she is going tc 
be great. f 


She plays behind senior Tracy 
Taylor now, but the 6-1 freshman 
sees enough action to contribute 7.5 
points a game and 6.2 rebounds a 
night. She has a game high of 16 

Linda Grayson 
Linda was an all-state selection both her junior and 
senior years and was the main part of three conse- 
cutive state championship teams. 

Kristy Harris, another of the Natchitoches Parish 
girls that the Lady Demons wound up with, plays the 
role of playmaker, in a reserve position. 

Playing behind Teressa Thomas, 
Harris has still seen enough action 
to get in a personal high of eight 
points against Centenary while 
gaining valuable experience running 
the Lady Demon floor show. 

Kristy Harris 

Kristy was an all-stater at Nachitoches-Central for 
two years and was the 2-AAAA MVP her senior 
year. Her sophomore team won the state cham- 

She's a defensive whiz and she invariably guards 
the other team's star player. Her name is Kim Paulk 
and she has started every game the past three years 
and has been a four year player for the Lady 

While only averaging 5.6 points a 
game and 4 rebounds, Kim's talents 
most often go unnoticed. She is 
second on the team in assists with 
70, but she often wins games herself 
by holding the opponents top scorer 
to almost nothing. 

Kim Paulk 

Kim proved she can score by coming up with a 
season high of 15 points against Texas Southern and! 
has a season high of eight rebounds. 

Senior center Tracy Taylor is winding up a career 
that will mark her as being one of the all-tin^ 
great Lady Demon basketball players. And trie! 
Downsville, Lousisiana senior still hasjier best ball 
ahead of her. 

She leads the Lady Demons in 
just about every important 
category. She's hitting 18.7 points a 
game and grabbing 10.3 rebounds 
each time she hits the floor. And 
with the Lady Demons habit of 
frequent substitution, she's spent b„, 
alot of time on the bench. Tracy Taylor 

Tracy was one of two Lady Demons on the all- 
tournament team in the Lady Pack Classic and also 
made the Dial Classic all-tourney team. She grabbed 
19 rebounds versus Nevada-Reno and scored 30 
points agianst both LSU and Tennesse Tech. Against 
the No. 1 ranked Lady Techster's, she had almost 
half of the Lady Demons points. 

She was one of the most highly sought after players 
in the state two years ago. She was all-state for four 
straight years, and her teams lost only five times in 
four years with her running the show. She was the 
first Louisiana Independent School Asssociation 
player ever to score over 2,000 points in a career, and 
now that she's at Northwestern, she hasn't disan- 
pointed anybody. 

Her name is Teressa Thomas and 
she is the Lady Demon that runs the 
show. From her point guard 
position. Teressa has started every 
game that she's been in, and con- 
trolled most of them. | , 25 

Teressa Thomas 

Teressa leads the Lady Demons in assists with 89 
and scored 20 points against Lamar while averaging 
10.3 in a playmaker role. Last year she ranked in the 
top 20 in the nation in free throw percentage with an 
81 .2 average. 

The third member of three time state cham-, 
pionship trio from Campti, Sandy Pugh averaged 14 
points and eight rebounds per game on a talent laden

Sandy Pugh 

Sandy has proven to be a clutch foul shooter 
hitting on .833 percent of her foul shots on the year. r. 

She was named MVP in the state following her 
senior year of high school basktball and was a 
teammate of Linda Grayson and Sandra Pugh on 
three straight state championships. Her name is j 
Annie Harris, and she too, like Grayson, is goine to 
be great. 

Already seeing alot of action as a 

Lady Demon, Annie scored 13 

points against nationally recognized 

Kansas. She is averaging 3.1 points

Janette Ryan was one of four Lady Demons to 
play in the Louisiana High School all-star game at 
the end of her h.s. caeer. She averaged 16.3 points at 
Buckeye High School where she was an all-stater. 

As a Lady Demon, Janette hit a

The head man for the 
Demons is fourth year head 
coach Wayne Yates. Although 
his four year record here is 
only 43-57, the past two years 
have been spent rebuilding. 

Yates took over after then

19-9 and finished second in the 
Trans America Athletic 

Yates has -

the home 
folks a 
winner. Des- 
pite a 9-19 
showing last 
year, NSU 
won eight 
games at Head Coach 
home against Wayne Yates 
just six losses. 

Prior to joining the Demon 
staff, Yates was coach at 
Memphis State where his 
teams posted records of 20-7, 
21-9, 20-9, and 19-9. His 
playing careeer was spent at 
Memphis State too, where one 
of his teams advanced to the 
National Invitational 

He was drafted by the Los 
Angeles Lakers in the first 
round of the NBA draft, and 
Played until 1966.

She missed the first half of this season, but now 
that she's back, the Lady Demons are a much, much 
stronger balllclub. Her name is Val Williams, and for 
the past two years she has been one of the most 
valuable reserves the Lady Demons can call on. 

"Valley Girl" averaged almost 
five points and four rebounds a

Demon contests last year. This year 
she has a high of six points while

Carter Named MVP In Reno Tournament 

Lady Demon senior forward 
Lisa Carter was named Most

teammate Tracy Taylor on the 
All-Tournament team in the 
Lady Pack Classic in Reno, 

Carter shot an unbelievable 
77 percent from the field in the

in both games. The Ft. Walton 
Beach, Florida native has the 
highest career shooting 
average of any current Lady 
Demon players. 

Carter also added 10 
rebounds in the two game 
tournament which the Lady 
Demons won. 

Taylor, the Lady Demons 
leading scorer this year,

Texas Baptist 89-61. 

The Demons pushed out 
front 19-10 with just five 
minutes gone in the game on a 
Donald Mays three-point play. 
Two minutes later Robert 
Anthony made it an 11 point 
NSU lead. 

The Demons expanded that 
margin to 23 when DeSHon 
Jenkins made his second 
straight field goal to give the 
Northwestern quintent a 51-28 

The second half was more 
of the same for the Demons. 
They started by scoring the 

first eight points and raced to 
a 32 point advantage when 
Fred Walker picked the ball 
away from ETBC and raced 
downcourt for the layup. 

ETBC could get no closer 
than 24 points from the 
Demons as NSU raced to its 
biggest win of the season. 

The Demons were paced in 
scoring by Anthony who 
tallied 22 points. He was 
followed by Walker's 15 and 
Sylvester Smith's 10. 

Anthony and Donald Mays 
each grabbed eight rebounds 
and Walker, Jerry Harris, and 
Robin Grays hauled in four 
apiece. Charles Nash had six 
assists for the Demons and 
Walker and Smith contributed 
five apiece. 

NSU 66 
Southeastern 90 

The Demons dropped a 
tough 90-66 decision to the 
Lions of Southeastern in the 
first round of the Pacemaker 
Classic in Monroe. 

The first half was nip and 
tuck throughout. SLU scored 
the first three points of the 
game before Robert Anthony 
took a feed from Charles Nash 
for the Demons first bucket. 

The Demons finally went 
ahead of the Lions when Nash 
hit a jumper with 7:50 left in 
the initial stanza. The Demons 
expanded that lead to five 

when Nash canned a shot from 
the right side of the lane to 
make the score 21-16. 

Southeastern reeled off 10 
unanswered points to take a 
26-21 lead and never 
relinquished it, going into the 
locker room with a 32-27 

The Demons were led by 
Charles Nash's 17 points and 
he was followed by Robert 
Anthony with 15 and Sylvest 
Smith with 1 1 . 

Robin Grays had six 
rebounds for the Demons and 
Fred Walker contributed four 

Robert Garris finds the going tough against La. 
Tech earlier this year. Garris and the Demons play 
.host to Southatern tonight at 7:30. 

NSU 65 
Mercer 81 

Mercer's much taller Bears 
used a big rebounding margin 
to drop the Demons 81-65 in 
TAAC action in Macon, 

Mercer outrebounded the 
Demons 43-29, most of those 
being offensive rebounds that 
they put back up and scored 
with, to drive to a 41-26 
halftime lead. 

The Demons played the 
Bears even in the second half, 
but couldn't come any closer 
in dropping their third TAAC 

Fred Walker scored 16 
points and led the Demon 
cause, while Sylvester Smith 
and Donald Mays added 13 
and 11 points respectively. 

Georgia Southern hit 16 free 
throws down the stretch and 
that was the difference as the 
TAAC co-leaders downed the 
Demons 79-63 in conference 
play in Statesboro, Georgia. 

It was a game in which the 
Demons just couldn't make 
the open shot in spite of a big 
improvement in the 
rebounding game. 

Jerry Harris was one of only 
two Demons to shoot 50 
percent from the field as he 
rifled home 17 points. Charles 
Nash added 13 and Robin 
Grays, the other Demon 
hitting 50 percent, had eight 

Harris doubld as the leading 
rebounder for Nothwestern 
with nine while Grays had 
eight caroms. 

NSU 75 
Hardin-Simmons 55 

The Demons used a 23-10 
spun midway through the 
second half, and never looked 
back in clobbering a hapless 
Harden-Sinimons ballclub 75- 
55 in Trans America Athletic 
Conference action. 

It was close most of the first 
half with the Demons taking a 
34-29 lead into the dressing 
room at halftime, but the 
second half belonged to the 
purple and white as the 
Demons won their first TAAC 
game of the year. 

Frederick Walker hit 19 
points and had three steals for 
the Demons while running 
mate Donald Mays had 16 
points and 12 rebounds to 
dominate the boards. 

Jerry Harris pitched in 13 
points and Robert Athony had 
12 for the NSU cause. Charles 
Nash had five assists to go 
along with four steals while 
Sylveter Smith added five 
rebounds on the night. 


Robin Grays seems to dare these two Techsters to 
get in his way. The 6'6" Grays is one of the leaders 
on coach Wayne Yates team. 

NSU 50 
Nicholls St. 73 

Nicholls State broke open a 
close game by scoring 13 
straight points in the second 
half to take an easy 73-50 win 
over the Demons in Prat her 

l ied Walker sank a short

The Demons tied the game 
at 25-al on a massive Robin

16-7 the rest of the way to pull 
ahead for good.

who each scored 15 points. 
The only other Demon to hit 
double figures was Fred 
Walker who tallied 10 points. 

Robin Grays had six 
rebounds to lead NSU while

Smith Feels Good About Baseball 

Heading into his 16th 
season as the head of the 
Northwestern baseball 
piogram Coach Herbie Smith 
feels pitching and defense will 
be the key to the success the 
Demons might enjoy during 
the upcoming season. 

The Demons return five 
defensive starters and eight 
pitchers from the last team 
that posted a 26-30 mark last 
season. In 1983 the Demons 
defeated two teams that 
advanced to the NCAA post- 
season tournament (Gram- 
bling and Tulane) and placed 
fourth in the Trans America 
Conference post-season 

The catching porition may 
be a question mark until Smith 
can gel a good look at 
Winkelhake, who just joined 
the team for the second 
semester. Lupo caught nearly 
all of the games in the Fall, 
and proved to be solid. 
Winkelhake last Spring was 
drafted by the Chicago While 
Sox after his season at Harper 
(IL) Junior College. 

The outfield has only one 
returning player in cen- 
ter fielder Gil Herndon, and 
Smith expects big things from 
the smallish senior. Last year 
Herndon hit .261 and weilded 
a hot bat at the end of the 
season, especially in the 
TAAC tournament. Herndon 
was 10 of 14 in stolen base 
attempts last season and also 
had nine doubles to rank 
second on the team. 

The left and right field spots 
will be filled by newcomers, 
with the top three prospects 
being junior college transfers 
Gary Rogers, Jim Smedley 
and Brian Bettis. Rogers 

played at Muscatine (1A) JC, 
Bettis at Land of Lincoln (IL) 
JC and Smedley at Harper JC. 
After Fall action, Rogers and 
Smedley were running close 
for the leftfield spot while 
Bettis was in right field. 
Patterson could also move 
from first base to right field 
and Smith says pitcher Doyle 
Potts can play in the outfield. 

The key returning players 
in the infield include shortstop 
David Reynolds and third 
baseman Scott Huscroft. Last 
season as a freshman Reynolds 
hit .274 and led the team with 
six home runs while starting 
every game and fielding over 
.900 for the year. 

Reynolds was hot at the end 
of the season, hitting three 
home runs in the conference 
tournament. Reynolds was 
named to the all-tournament 
team and later to the all- 
conference team while also 
being and All-Louisiana 

Huscroft divided his time 
between third base and the 
pitching mound last season 
and was second on the team 
with a .304 batting average. At 
second base the Demons have 
a pair of sophomores, Billy 
Stevenson and David Bailey. 
Stevenson hit the ball well as a 
freshman, leading the team 
with 10 doubles. According to 
Smith, Bailey is probably the 
most improved player on the 
squad from a year ago. 

Smith will also be able to 
call on sophomore Rufino 
Suarez for help in the infield. 
Suarez can play any of the 
three infield positions other 
than first base and last year hit 
.266 while compiling an

At first base, Smith has 
several options. Veteran 
Wayne Lupo returns for his 
final season, but likely will 
spend alot of time behind the 
plate catching. That leaves 
transfer Bubba Patterson and 
freshman Brian McPherson to 
share first base, while Lupo 
will also see some action there. 

"The transfer kids got 
better with each outing in the 
Fall," said Smith. "Gary and 
Jim arc pretty close in left, it 
will probably come down to 
who is hilling the ball better. 
In right Brian has real good 
speed and an excellent arm. 
They all will be good players 
as they get settled in. Plus we 
have some freshmen players 
thai can play there too." 

The pitching staff returns a 
number of veterans, and 
Smith is hoping there is 
enough depth there to get 
through the rugged schedule. 
Senior Joe Jackson posted a 6- 
2 mark last season with a 3.98 
earned run average, and Kevin 
Warner, another senior, was 
5-3 last year. 

Other seniors on the staff 
include John Kowalski, Carl 
Soileait, Trey McCollum and 
Jay Lavesperc. Kowalski was 
the workhorse last season, 
posting a 5-10 mark. He also 
had one save and a 5.63 earned 
run average. 

Soileau is a veteran that 
Smith says has showed the 
most improvement. Soileau 
was 1-1 last season and Smith 
savs he will be ticketed for 
more duty this year. while 
Lavesperc is a three-year 
Iciicrnian who missed all of 
last Spring with arm injuries. 

To go with the returning 
veterans, S m i t h has 
sophomore Clifton Walker 
who saw some action last 
season and sophomore Doyle 
Potts who was 1-1 in 1983. 
The staff should also get a 
boost from lefty Mike An- 
tonini, s> strong thrower who 
sat out as a transfer last year. 

"Overall I think our defense 
should be our strength," 
concluded Smith. "At times 
last season we started four 
freshmen in the infield, so we 
should be able to perform 
better with an added year of 

"1 know th outfield won't 
be as strong right away 
because we lost two players 
with alot of experience," 
added Smith. "But the players 
we have this year have the 
ability and talent, it's a matter 
of them getting settled and just 
playing. Again, pitching 
should be a strong point in 
that it would appear we have 
depth and experience." 

Robinson Leads Lady 
Demons Into Action 

Led by last year's batting 
champion Julie Robinson, the 
Lady Demons softball team 
swings into action Saturday 
March 3 with a doubleheader 
against Mississippi State here 
in Nachitoches. 

The ' Lady Demons, who 
finished 19-10 last year under 
fourth year man James Smith, 
already acknowledged as one 
of the premeir softball coaches 
in the region, return all but 
two starters off last year's 

Robinson, a leftfielder, 
batted .372 last year with one 
home run, and leads a strong 
cast that includes the second 
leading batter from a year ago, 
Annette Manuel who hit .359 
with a home run also. 

Designated hitter Sherrie 
Broocks with a .340 slugging 
percentage will return for 

another tour of duty as will 
last year's home run champ, 
Janet Guerrini, who slugged 
three round trippers. 

The pitching staff returns 
completely intact with 
workhorse Sidney Forrester 
and Cindy Berry. 

Forrester pitched in 27 
games last year compiling a 
17-9 record, 41 strikeouts, and 
an ERA of 1.35. Berry pitched 
in three games and was 2-1 
with seven strikeouts and an 
ERA of 1.31. 

Other returning players for 
the Lady Demons include 
stellar second baseman Renee 
Richard who hit at a .277 clip 
while fielding 93 percent from 
the field, and, when she wasn't 
pitching, Berry was the 
starting right fielder for NSU, 
and she hit .229.

Football Year-In-Review 

In Spite of Persistant Tough Luck, Demons Find Way To Win 

At the beginning of the 1983 season, Demon 
Coach Sam Goodwin was sharing a thought from his 
former boss with the Northwestern football team. 

"Coach Lou Holtz told us at Arkansas, and told 
the team, that we would have to face at least three 
crisis periods during the season," said Goodwin. 
"He always said that it was how you handled those 
critical times that would make what type of season 
you would have." 

After ending the 1983 slate with an overall record 
of 4-7 and a three-game winning streak in the final 
month of the year, Goodwin would have to wish that 
Holtz was right. That his team would have only had 
three crisis periods, instead of what the team did go 

It started from the first week, when eight Demon 
players were found to ineligible. That threw off the 
final week of preparing for McNeese State and the 
Demons lost 18-13. After a win the following week 
over Angelo State, the breaks all seemed to go the 
other way. 

At Tulsa the Demons played very well, but four 
fields goals from outside of 40 yards spelled the 
difference as the Hurricane won 26-19. The following 
week it was a deflected pass in the final minute that 
gave Abilene Christian 20-17 win over the Demons. 

That was followed by a 27-25 loss to Stephen F. 
Austin at home, and then Southwest Texas State, 
ranked No. 1 in the nation in Division II, used a big 
pass interference and a field goal in the final 32 
seconds to defeat the Demons by 16-14. 

It would only get worse. Six interceptions, two that 
were returned for touchdowns, were the difference in 
the 24-20 loss at Alcorn State. The following week it 

Gets Jersey Retired 

was fumbles as the Demons let a 1C - halftime 
advantage slip away in a 21-10 loss to Louisiana 

After an open date, the Demons would lose eight 
more players before traveling tc Nicholls State for 
the final road game of the season. With three games 
left, many wondered if the Demons would win again 
in 1983. 

"I've got a tremendous feeling for this team," said 
Goodwin after the win on Saturday night. "You 
can't believe the things that have happened to us. I've 
never been around as much adversity on a football 
team in my life. It looked like we might lose the team 
all together for awhile. But they managed to hang in 
there somehow and we finally got the big win at 
Nicholls. Right now we are a heck of a football team, 
as good as any in the top 20 probably. I think we 
proved that be beating Northeast." 

The Demons, despite the record of only 4-7, played 
good football most of the season. The seven defeats 
came by a total of 34 points, and only once was the 
margin of defeat more than a touchdown. 

For the season the Demons scored three more 
touchdowns than their opponents and were only 
outscored overall by a 211-208 margin. Early in the 
year NSU opponents made their first 12 goal at- 
tempts before finally missing. On the other hand, 
Northwestern made just four of its first 12 attempts 
before Benny Brouillette came on in the final four 
games to kick five of six three-pointers. 

"We had a great week of practice getting ready for 
the final game and the kids have gotten so close 
together over the past few weeks," added Goodwin. 
"That's what winning does for you I guess." 

Reasons Named All- American For Third Year 

The American Football Coaches Association 
(AFCA) named Northwestern linebacker Gary 
Reasons to the Kodak All-America Team for the 
University I-AA class. 

Reasons, a 6-4, 235-pounder senior from Crowley, 
TX, thus becomes the first Division I-AA player to 
ever win All-American first team honors for three 
seasons. Reasons was first named to the honor squad 
as a sophomore and has been a first team selection 
since that time. 

The University I-AA team is composed of players 
from school in the NCAA's same classification. 
Robert Griffin, football coach at the University of 
Rhode Island, chaired the selection committee. The 
Kodak honor team consists of one 12-man offensive 
unit and one 12-man defensive unit. 

"Gary is the first and only player to earn this 
honor for three years," said Griffin of the selection. 
"It is indeed very rare and of course will be difficult 
for someone to duplicate." 

Reasons this past season enjoyed his best year as a 
Demon. Reasons led the team in tackles with 172 this 
past season, including 94 solo stops and 78 assists. 
During his final season Reasons also had four tackles 
for losses, intercepted two passes, broke-up four 
Passes, blocked one field goal and handled all 
kicking-off duties for the Demons. 

"I can't imagine a guy having a better season that 
what Gary did for us this year," said Northwestern 
State Coach Sam Goodwin. "He was in on so many 
tackles in every game and did a great job of adjusting 
to a new defensive system. He has all the talent. Size, 
speed, intelligence, and great feet. For a guy his size, 
he has great foot movement." 

"Gary is just a guy that loves the game of foot- 
hall," continued Goodwin. "He hates to get 
blocked. As good as he is against the run, he's as 
good as any inside linebacker I've seen against the 
Pass. For all his talent and ability, we may miss his 
jeadership qualities next year more than anything. He 
is a great team leader." 

For his four year career, Reasons totaled 226 solo 
tackles and 168 assists in 42 games for 394 total 
tackles. He also had 22 tackles behind the line of 

scrimmage broke-up 10 passes, intercepted five 
passes, recovered two fumbles and blocked one field 

Reasons moved into the starting line-up today 
through his freshman season for the Demons and 
started all but one game since that time. "It's exciting 
and I'm happy about it," said Reasons of the All- 
American honor. 

Demons Set Records 
On Way To 4-7 Mark 

On its way to three straight wins to close out the 
1983 football season the Demon football team set 
several school records and established top per- 
formances in several statistical areas. 

The record setting was led by junior Michael 
Richardson, who set a school record with five pass 
interceptions in the win over Southeastern Louisiana. 
Richardson also set an NSU mark by returning one 
of those interceptions 97 yards for a score, marking 
the longest return in Demon history and the fourth 
longest play ever for the Demons. 

Richardson's five interceptions tied a national 
record and his 128 yards in pass interception return 
yardage in that contest set both school and national 
records. Richardson ended the season with six pass 
interceptions and now had 14 in his career. 

Junior Roy Fontenot, in his third year as the 
kickoff and punt return man for the Demons, also 
added his name to the record books. Fontenot set a 
career record in punt returns and for kickoff and 
punt return yardage. 

The only other individual record that was set was 
done so by freshman punter Mike Crow, who tied the 
single season record with 65 punts. Crow was also 
near records for punting yardage and punting 
average during his rookie season. Crow's longest 
kick of 68 yards is the sixth longest in Northwestern 

In the team stats, Northwestern tied a school 
record during the season by successfully attempting 
two two-point conversions. NSU also tied a single 
game record for two-point conversions. 

On the negative side of the record books, Demon 
quarterbacks Stan Powell and Wayne Van combined 
to set a new mark of six pass interceptions being 
thrown by Demon quarterbacks in a single game, 
that coming in a 24-20 loss to Alcorn State. 

The Demon pass secondary which ended the 
season ranked 13th in the nation in pass defense, set a 
school record with the seven pass interceptions in the 
23-7 win over Southeastern Louisiana. 

Demon senior wide receiver Jerry Wheeler also tied 
the school record for career receptions with 95 and 
moved into second place in the yardage list with 
1,574 yards in receptions. Wheeler had 117 yards in 
receptions in two games during the season, including 
the Alcorn State contest when two of his three 
receptions went for scores. 

Reasons, Richardson Head All-Louisiana 

Running back Buford Jordan of McNeese 
and Northwestern linebacker Gary Reasons 
were selected for the third time and were chosen 
as "Players of the Year" to highlight the 1983 
All-Louisiana Collegiate Football Team 
selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers 

Jordan, the state's all-time rushing leader, 
was chosen as "Offensive Players of the Year," 
and Reasons, a three-time division 1-AA all- 
America choice, won "Defensive Player of the 
Year" honors. 

Northeast provided the other two "of the 
year" selections with Pat Collins being named 
"Coach of the Year" in the state and the In- 
dians' sensational transfer kicker, Jesse Garcia, 
winning "Newcomer of the Year." Collins led 
NLU to the school's first conference title in 
history with the co-championship of the 
Southland Conference. The Indians were 8-3 
this year for the second season in a row despite 
losing one ail-American and seven first or 
second team all-conference players. 

Garcia also made the all-Louisiana team at 
place kicker as Northeast supplied the most 
players on the squad with seven first teamers 
and four second team members. LSU had four 
first teamers, Tulane, McNeese, Grambling and 
Northwestern two each, and Louisiana Tech, 
Nicholls State, Southeastern, Southern and 
Southwestern had one each.

The Demons this season, as 
in the past, will rely heavily on 
the efforts of All-American 
sprinters such ' as Mario 
Johnson, Ray Brown and 
Edgar Washington. Those 
three have been in national 
competition for the Demons 
over the past three years, and 
Coach Johnson hopes more of 
the same is in store for 1984. 

"Our strength will again be 
in the sprints and relays with 
the speed that we have," noted 
Demon track coach Leon 
lohnson. "So as in the past we 
will be stronger outdoors than 
indoors. But we have several 
new faces on the squad this 
season in several events, so we 
are anxious to see what they 
can do.' 

The Demons have had little 
time to prepare as a team for 
the indoor season, as school 
has just started this week. 
"We have to hope that the 
kids came back to school in 
shape," admitted Johnson. 
"If not, it will take us awhile 
to be ready for competition." 

Mario Johnson is the leader 
of the sprint squad as twice he 
has earned All-American 
recognition for his outdoor 
performances and in each of 
the past two years he has 
earned a trip to the national 
indoor meet in the 60-yard 

Edgar Washington is 
another veteran runner while 
Wilson Brown had a strong 
freshman season a year ago. 
Ray Brown, no relation to 
Wilson, earned his All- 
American honors in 1982 
before sitting out last season. 

Johnson will also depend on 
veteran runners such as junior 
Percy McGlory, Ken Moseley 
and distance man Andy 
Nelson. Also there are several 
freshman runners that 
Johnson feels will be able to 
contribute right off the bat. 

Johnson is the first to admit 
that the field event and 

jumping event areas are 
question marks for his team. 
"We will have new faces in 
several of those areas," said 
Johnson. "We want to see 
what some of them can do 
before we talk about how 
good they may or may not 

The Demons will open the 
outdoor season with a home 
meet on March 2.

championships will be held 
March 9-10 in Syracuse, NY. 

Along with the two home 
meets, the Demons will run in 
the La. Tech Invitational, the 
LSU Invitational and the NLU 

"I think our schedule is an 
attractive one in that each 
week we will be competing 
against strong competition," 
said Johnson of the 1984 slate. 
"We are looking forward to 
getting started and our fans 
will have an early chance to see 
us compete when the outdoor 
season gets underway."

Chartering Ceremony 
April 28 For Blue Key 

Alumni Chapter 

Officers from Blue Key 
National Honor Fraternity 
headquarters in New Orleans 
will be on campus April 28, 
to conduct the official cere- 
mony chartering the NSU 
Blue Key Alumni Chapter. 

During the summer of 1983, 
Northwestern officials were 
notified by the national office 
of Blue Key that the NSU Blue 
Key Alumni Chapter had been 
approved and would have the 
distinction of being the first 
alumni chapter of Blue Key 
anywhere in the United States. 

The Silver Anniversary of 
Blue Key at Northwestern is 
one of the major highlights of 
NSU's Centennial Celebration 
in 1984. 

The Blue Key un- 
dergraduate chapter was 
founded at Northwestern on 
Dec. 9, 1959. The founding 
adviser was Leonard O. 
Nichols, retired dean of men 
and the NSU Blue Key adviser 
from 1959 to 1970. 

NSU dean of students of 
Dr. Frederick C. Bosarge, the 
Blue Key adviser since 1970, 
said Blue Key alumni will be 
receiving additional in- 
formation by mail prior to the 

According to Bosarge, the 
schedule for Saturday af- 
ternoon will include a full 
meeting of the NSU Blue Key 
Alumni Chapter, which will be 
reviewing its accomplishments 
of the past year and plans for 
the future. T ours f° r tne 
families of B,lue Key alumni 
are also being"planned. 

The chartering ceremonies 
will be during the annual Blue 
Key Banquet, which is 
scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the 
Student Union Ballroom. The 
banquet will be the 
culmination of a day-long 
celebration of the 25th an- 

niversary of the Blue Key at 

In addition to the chartering 
ceremonies, other highlights 
of the Blue Key Banquet will 
be the presentation of the 
Leonard Nichols Award to the 
most dependable and 
responsive chapter member, 
the Dudley Fulton Award to a 
student, faculty or staff 
member for meaningful 
contributions to NSU and the 
Fred C. Bosarge Award to an 
outstanding junior member in 
Blue Kev. 

The Blue Key Alumni 
Chapter was formally 
established at Northwestern 
on April 30, 1983. Nichols is 
president of the alumni 
chapter, and Bosarge is the 
vice-president. Jimmy Berry, 
principal of the NSU Middle 
Laboratory School, is the 
recording secretary, and the 
treasurer is Leonard Blanton, 
an accountant for Western 
Electric in Shreveport. 

The two main objectives of 
the Blue Key Alumni Chapter 
are to provide a continuing 
connection between Blue Key 
alumni both with each other 
and with the university, and to 
provide continuing service to 
Northwestern in terms of 
scholarship programs and 
recruitment activities. 

According to Bosarge, 
progress has been toward the 
eventual establishment of a 
Blue Key Alumni Scholarship 
at Northwestern. 

The NSU dean of students 
also said that provisions have 
been made for Northwestern 
Blue Key memorabilia to be

Play Performed At Regional Competition 

Northwestem's production 
of "Children of a Lesser 
God," directed by Ray 
Schexnider, was selected for 
presentation during the 
American College Theatre 
Festival's Region VI com- 
petition Jan. 18-21 at the Scott 
Theater in Fort Worth, Tex. 

Mark Medoff's Tony 
Award-winning play about the 
relationship between a speech 
therapist and a young deaf 
woman was one of eight plays 
chosen for the competition, 
according to Dr. Richard 
Weaver, southwest regional 
chairman and head of the 
theater arts department at 
Texas Tech University, 

Other plays selected for the 
ACTF regional finals were 
"The Crucible" by Louisiana 
Tech University, "My Body" 
by Texas Woman's University, 
"The Definers" by Texas 
Wesleyan University, 
"Backyard Story" by 
Southwest Texas State 
University, "Terra Nova" by 
New Mexico State University, 
"The Victors" by Northeast 
Oklahoma State University, 
and "Lyde Breeze" by 
Oklahoma City Junior 

Weaver said 68 plays were 
entered in the Texas, 
Arkansas, Oklahoma, 
Louisiana and New Mexico 
state festivals, but only 13 of 
the productions received 
nominations for presentations 
at the regional competition in 
Fort Worth. 

Jerry Crawford of the 
University of Nevada at Las 
Vegas will be the critic for the 
Region VI finals, which sends 
its winning play to the ACTF 
national competition at the 
Kennedy Center for the 
Performing Arts in 
Washington, D.C. 

"Children of a Lesser God" 
is the second production 
directed by Schexnider at 
Northwestern to have been 
selected for the regional finals. 
In 1973, his play entitled 
"Sticks and Bones" 
represented Louisiana's state 
festival in Fort Worth. 

"From the beginning I knew 
we had one of the best shows 
in Louisiana," said Schex- 
nider. "We had a powerful 
script, a fine cast and a great 
technical crew. The show was 
solid, and the whole thing was 
so professionally done." 

The NSU play stars Chris 
Louisell of Chattanooga, 
Tenn., as the speech therapist 
and Rhonda Annette Flack as 
the young deaf woman. 
Louisell is a junior speech 
major at Northwestern. Miss 
Flacky born deaf, is a 
Natchitoches Central High 
School senior and also a 
student in the Natchitoches- 
Northwestern Program for the 
Hearing Impaired. 

"I had followed the script 
since Medoff's play opened in 
New York several years ago," 
said Schexnider. "From what 
I had read about the play, I 
became more aware of just 
how powerful a a script it

He added, "When we 
finally got the performance 
rights to the play in August, 
we were already behind. Our 
male lead had only six weeks 
to learn the American Sign 
Language, while the male lead 
in the Broadway play had six 
months to prepare." 

"I followed the playwright's 
instructions to the letter, 
which included the use of a 
deaf girl in the lead role," said 
Schexnider. "I think having 
Rhonda cast as the deaf 
woman added credence to the 
strength of the performance 
she was capable of giving." 

Louisell, Miss Flack and 
Rabbi Williams of Nat- 
chitoches were members of the 
"Children of a Lesser God" 
cast honored at the state 
festival in October with 
nominations for the Irene 
Ryan Scholarship Award. 
Regional auditions for the 
award were conducted Jan. 
16-17 in Fort Worth. 

Northwestem's production 
of "Children of a Lesser

An article published 
recently by Dr. Gail Goodwin 
of Northwestern has been 
selected to be indexed in the 
10th volume of "The In- 
ventory of Marriage and 
Family Literature." 

The article entitled 
"Adolescents' Perception of 
Three Styles of Parental 
Control," appears in the fall 
1983 issue of "Adolescence." 
It is based on a research 
project conducted in 1982 on 
one hundred teenagers. 

Dr. Goodwin, professor of 
student personnel services in 
the Department of 
Psychology, said the selection 
committee for the national 
index draws articles from 800 
journals which demonstrate 
the broad, interdisciplinary 
nature of the field. 

In addition to being in- 
cluded in the index, the NSU 
professor's article will be 
placed in the computer 

retrieval service provided by 
the Family Resource and 
Referral Center that is 
sponsored by the National 
Council on Family Relations. 

Dr. Goodwin conducted the 
research with assistance from 
graduate student Debra Cay 
Kelly, a secondary reading 
major from Natchitoches. 

"The results of this study," 
said Dr. Goodwin, "showed 
that a democratic style 
engendered a greater desire to 
model after parents. The 
exception occurred in their 
interaction with peers; the 
majority of teens in the study 
said they would decide who 
their friends would be

Gates, Lights, and Officers 

Security Plan Introduced 

By John Ramsey 

Security gates, increased 
lighting, and more police 
officers are key parts of a new 
security plan to be proposed 
later this year. 

The plan, to increase 
campus security, is being 
designed by Dr. George 
Stokes, vice-president for 
university affairs , Dr. Fred 
Bosarge, dean of students and 
James K. Lee, chief of 
University Police. 

Placement of gates at four 
of the five campus entrances is 
the top priority of the new 
plan, which, according to Dr. 
Stokes, is not yet in its final 

These gates, which would be 
locked between midnight and 
5 a.m. and during student 
holidays, would be located on 
Jefferson Drive (near 
Chaplain's Lake), Caspari 
Drive (between Varnado Hall 
and Natchitoches High), Sam 
Sibley Drive (near Rapides 
Hall and Watson Library) and 
Tarlton Drive (near the 
Teacher Education Center.) 

"These gates would reduce 
the amount of traffic from the 
non-NSU community," 
Stokes said. "We owe it 
(safety) to our students." 

He added that the gates 
could be styled to match the 
campus architecture. "We 
don't want it to look like a 
prison stockade." 

A second part of the plan is 
the lighting of twenty-eight 
"dark area" on the campus. 
These areas were listed by two 
female graduate students in 
1981. Examples are the area 
behind Caspari Hall (near the 
stadium), the railroad tracks 
near Jefferson Drive, behind 
Greek Hill, around Caddo 
Hall, the sidewalk from Kyser 
Hall to the dorms, Demon 
Triangle, and the areas 
surrounding the three 

Also proposed is the 
conversion of a portion of the 
large Sabine Hall parking lot 
to a through street connecting 
Sam Sibley Drive and the area 
of campus containing the 
Health and P.E. Building, 
Greek Hill, and the Teacher 
Education Center. 

"This road would eliminate 
use of the Caddo Hall parking 
lot . and greatly improve 
pedestrian and traffic safety in 
the Sabine lot," said Stokes. 
The Board of Trustees has 
already approved a name for 
the proposed street: Robson 

Electronic surveillance 
equipment would be placed in 
dormitories and classroom 
buildings under the proposal. 
Monitors would be placed in 
the University Police building. 

Another proposal is the use 
of an ID card building access 

system. Only approved cards 
would allow access to a 

Two additional police 
officers for dorm duty are also 
mentioned in the proposal. A 
satellite police station would 
also be established in Sabine 
Hall to improve dorm 

"This plan will take a lot of 
money," Stokes said. "It will 
probably take several years to 
implement; however, in- 
creased campus security would 
be worth it ." 

Sauce Poll: 

84% Say No To Gates 

By Craig Scott 

The proposal to place 
locking gates at four entrances 
of NSU's campus met with 
fierce opposition by students. 

Upon being asked, amost 
every student polled im- 
mediately countered with: 

Junior Debbie McCary was 
among these. "The reason for 
this seems kind of hazy," says 
McCary. "Why is it 

Guy Cloutier, a freshman, 
argued that "they won't last. 
It would be a "waste of 

Student Wanda Huhner 
observed "If someone wanted 
to get on the campus, they 
could, with or without gates. 
It doesn't seem that it would 
be effective." Freshman 
Kimberly Spencer also 
maintained that "anyone who 
wanted to get on campus 
would, regafrrJless." 

On the other hand, several 
students, Tony Hernandez and 
Carolyn O'Neal among them, 
felt that it would be a "good 

This represented about 7 
percent of the poll. Nine 
percent of the students asked 
had no comment either way on 
the gate proposal. The 
remaining 84 percent were 
decidedly against the idea. 

The SGA will surely weigh 
each side of this proposal to 
erect gates carefully and make 
its recomendation ac- 
cordingly. But if the results of 
this poll are any indication, 
many students at NSU are 
definitely opposed to this idea.

Northwestern 's Impact 

$ 33.8 Million 

Northwestern main campus 
has a $33.8 million-a-year 
economic impact on the 
community, according to a 
recent study by Dr. Eugene 
Williams, professor and 
chairman of the Department 
of the Business. 

Williams' report shows that 
spending in Natchitoches 
resulting from the University's 
net payroll is estimated at $9.3 
million, and initial spending 
by students attending the 
University and residing in 
Natchitoches is approximately 
$8.4 million. 

Expenditures by Nor- 
thwestern in the community 
for goods and services and 
spending of visitors to the 
university are estimated at 
$3.4 million. Williams said 
lotal initial spending by 
faculty and staff, students, the 
university for goods and 
services and visitors will be 
approximately $21,105,286 in 

Economic impact studies 
show, according lo Williams, 
(hat a percentage of initial 
expenditures will be respent in 
Natchitoches. Subsequent 
expenditures attributed lo 
Northwestern will be $12.7 
million, making the total 
income generated by the 
University in Natchitoches 
some $33,768,458. 

Estimates "Conservative" 

Williams emphasized that 
the economic study included 
"conservative estimates" 
based upon findings of 
questionnaires to faculty and 
students, similar studies at 
other universities and 
secondary research. 

The study does not include 
the impact upon local 
government revenues and 
taxes, and it does not include 
the effect of Northwestern 
branches in Shreveport and at 
Fort Polk on the North 
Louisiana economy. 

Williams' report shows that, 
in addition to the multi- 
million dollar spending impact 
on the economy by Nor- 
thwestern, the University, 
directly or indirectly, 
generates more than 16 
percent of the total jobs in 
Natchitoches Parish. 

Northwestern directly 
employs some 800 persons in 
the parish. Because of incomes 
generated by the University, 
the indirect employment 
attributed to Northwestern is 
another 1,496 jobs, according 
to Williams.

thwestern's full economic 
impact on the community is

The clocks in some classroom buildings are not being fixed because of Northwestern 's 
new power hook-up. 

Melvin Moreau, television engineer, said Northwestern last summer put in a new 
transformer. The increase in power pulled down some of the clocks, but not all. Especially 
affected are clocks in Kyser Hall and the Fredericks Fine Arts Building. 

These clocks are not being fixed because a whole new system would be required. 
Moreau said it is unlikely the clocks will be fixed this spring or next fall.

Weather Damages Parts of Campus 

By Diana Gratten 

"People have been pretty 
good about understanding the 
problems we are having and 
our limitations" said Loran 
Lindsay, head of physical 
plant, planning and 
development. "We really 
appreciate the patience of 
most people." 

The damage on campus due 
to the cold freeze has been 
quite extensive. Presently no 
estimates are available. The 
University is fortunate the 
damage was not worse, ac- 
cording to Lindsay. It may be 
mid-March before everything 
is completely repaired. 

Maintenance is attempting 
to repair things that affect the 
students first, such as dorms, 
classes, and the dining halls. 
They are also spending the 
extra time to get things 
completely repaired the first 
time rather than doing just 
makeshift jobs. 

Lindsay said they are still 
finding a lot of damage that 
has not occured until recently. 
For instance, a circulation 
pump went out in Sabine 

Some of the damages in- 
clude pipes broken in several 
areas including on the farm, at 
the intramural building, on 
Carlton Drive, in Rapides 
Dorm, pipes over the track

Natchitoches Dorm had the

A Place To Relax 

By Eddie Norris 

Have you found yourself 
wrapped up in too many 
activities and wanting 
desperately to find a com- 
fortable, quiet resort from 
eveiyday routines of classes?'' 
Are you looking for a place to 
cool out and just simply 

One shelter has all that and 
more. It is available to 
students for peace and 
quiet, a sense of tranquility, 
and fun, as well as growth 

It is the Wesley Foundation, 
520 College Avenue, across 
the street from NSU's main 
gate. The center provides 
students an opportunity to get 
away from eveiyday pressures, 
to visit with other students, to 
get a meal, to participate in 
recreation, to enjoy solitude, 
or to obtain spiritual growth. 
Home Atmosphere 

Several NSU students enjoy 
the center because it enhances 
their lives. 

Jacquetta Navarre, a senior 
physical education major, 
enjoys television, the "noon 
alternative" and doing heg 
cross-stitching. "I like us

Linda Stuchlik, a senior 
English education major, saiA 
"I have made friends at the 
center, and it is a good place 
for me to feel safe as well as 
help me grow as a person." 

John Hosforf, a freshman

Valentine's Messages 

One Size Doesn't Fit All 

By Lucy LeBlanc 

Holidays don't seem to flow 

As I get older, they seem to 
pounce sooner and sooner. 
Things seem so different from 
first grade, when class projects 
were making Valentine's cards 
out of red construction paper 
and paper lace doilies to bring 
home to Mom and Dad. 

Today, when there doesn't 
seem to be enough time to put 
our heads on straight in the 
morning, there is an answer. 

During mid- January sales, I 
was reminded that Valentine's 
Day is near by the numerous 
displays of red-big red hearts, 
filled with candy, wrapped 
with cellophane, and 
decorated with pink plastic 
flowers; red teddy bears with 
"I LOVE YOU" printed in 
white; red and pink little 
candies with sweet little 
messages on them. 

At least we're given plenty 
of time to consider what we 
wish to purchase. 

The card display gets my 
full attention. I could spend 
hours there just reading. 
(Some of us are easily 

The variety of Valentine's 
cards is surprising. Cards 
range from sentimental to 
well-wishing to gag-joke 
cards. There are cards for 
everyone-flowers and still Iifes 
bring special messages to 
mothers of all ages, while the 
Kids enjoy Raggedy Ann and 
Andy and Mickey Mouse. 
Monkeys make faces at un- 
derstanding husbands, while 
ornately decorated hearts 
make wives feel guilty for 
picking out that monkey for 
the hubby. 

The romantic, sentimental 
cards are easily identified by 
their cover pictures: A couple 
walks hand-in-hand along a 
beach in front of a gorgeous 
sunset, or along a pond in a 
i park, laughing together as she 
carries balloons. (Do these 
things really happen?) 

My favorites, of course, are 
the Hallmark Lite cards (one- 
third less serious than regular 

A picture of a tennis ball 
over a net accompanies the 
line "I LOB YOU, 
VALENTINE" is an easy one 
to figure out. The entrance to 
a beehive has a short and 
catchy phrase; "BEE MINE." 

Even Snoopy gets in th 
mood of the holiday. He's 
giving away hugs as his 
"special" Valentine's Day 
gifts. I hope I get one. 

Should I get a funny card ~ or a flowery one? 

Senior Sharon Sampite 
examines the broad assort- 
ment of Valentine's Day card. 
The NSU Bookstore is a 

popular place among students 
shopping for the card with 
that "just right" message.

and other businesses, in- 
dustries and institutions which 
nave a significant impact on 
the economy. 

Studies show, said 
"illiams, that of the $9.3 
million spent in Natchitoches 
'rom the faculty-staff payroll, 
*}■•« percent was for housing, 
^'•5 percent for food, 15.4 
Percent for transportation, 14 
Percent for other services and 
'•3 Percent for clothing. 

More than 3,400 full-time 
students who reside in campus 
dormitories and live off- 
canipus spend an average of 
WU6.80 a month in the 
community, according to 
questiorraires compiled by 
w illiams for the study. 

°f the $8,437,440 spent by 

students in Natchitoches each 
year, 33.4 percent is for 
housing, 29.4 percent for food 
and drink, 17 percent for 
clothing, recreation and 
similar goods and services, 15 
percent for transportation 
costs and 4.8 percent for 
personal and business services 
and medical costs. 

Plays and Concerts 

Also difficult to measure, 
said Williams, are Nor- 
thwestern's social, political 
and cultural contributions to 
the community. He said the 
university "offers plays, 
concerts, recitals, 
distinguished speakers, 
athletic events, seminars and 
many other activities which 
are available to the public. ' ' 

Williams noted, "Faculty 
members are members of civic 
and social organizations give 

speeches, and consult for 
businesses in the local area. 
These contributions are not 
easily measurable." 

In responding to the study, 
Orze said, "It is obvious that 
Northwestern has an enor- 
mous economic impact on this 
community, and it is im- 
portant to emphasize that the 
study is, as the author states, 
extremely conservative. The 
true impact, then, is probably 
even greater that the report 

He added, "The University, 
during this Centennial year, is 
seeking alumni and com- 
munity financial support for 
future progress and 
development and the 
economic impact study shows 
that financial contributions to 
NSU are also a meaningful 
investment in the stability of 
the community."

a master of divinity degree 
from a seminary in Denver. 

An ordained minister in the 
Methodist Church. She was 
appointed Wesley Director by 
the bishop of the Louisiana 
Conference of United 
Methodists Churches. 

At the center, the Rev. Duke 
says any student can feel 
welcome to watch television or 
listen to music. A kitchen is 
available for student use. 

Guided activities begin on 
Sunday evenings with an 
informal dinner and worship 

service. On Mondays at 4 
p.m., there is a Bible study. 

Every third Wednesday the 
center has Communion ser- 
vices. There is a "noon

with a 50-cent meal and a 
program of ethical issues. 

The center sponsors events 
such as weekend retreats, a 
trip to Colorado for skiing 
during the Mardi Gras 
holidays, and a Valentine 
dinner and movie for lonely 
hearts and only hearts. 

The Rev. Duke said that the 
center is not just for Methodist

New Safety Proposals 

Inmate No. 000-00-0000 

The proposed security plans for our campus have 
been a popular conversation subject the past few 
days. Popular in that there has been much pon- 
dering, musing, speculation, and yes, of course, 

Highlighting the circulation talk is the plan to 
place gates at four entrances to Northwestern's 
campus. Many people, upon hearing of these gates, 
have jumped to conclusions that our university is 
changing its name to Northwestern State 
Penitentiary. We, too, had similar thoughts when 
we first heard about the gates and sent John 
Ramsey out to see just what this was all about. 
Instead of a horror-filled tale of martial law, the 
"gate story" turned out to be something less 

No, NSU students will not be denied freedom of 
entrance and exit after hours when the gates are 
erected. Ideally, having only one entrance after 
hours should allow undesirable visitors to be 
filtered out before they have a chance to get on 

Those who enter the campus will be carefully 
watched so that students alone can get safely to 
their dorms, and nonstudents have little op- 
portunity to cause trouble. 

The gates are just one element of the new security 
plans. The proposed lighting of dark areas on 
campus deserves special attention and support. For 
students who don't own cars, and for those who do 
but enjoy walking, dimly lit areas on campus serve 
as obstacles many times for those wanting to just 
go to the library and study. For this reason, adding 
lights can make many parts of campus accesible to 

The creation of a through street in the Sabine 
parking lot area will greatly improve traffic con- 
ditions in the area, not to mention increase safety 
of pedestrians and motorists. 

These costly plans will be slow to take full effect 
and we're sure that there will be some degree of 
adaptations by us all. But, as Dr. Stokes said, 
increased campus security will be worth it.

Humanize, v: make human, 
personify, personalize. 

A college campus is a 
strange place. 

It can be your "home away 

from home" certainly most 
full-time students spend more 
hours on campus than they do 
at home, (even when they 
commute); it • can com- 
municate a sense of joy, well- 
being, beauty or peace to its 
beholder, or it can be a sterile, 
utile facility used only for 
going to and from classes, 
occasionally standing and 
talking with friends, or 
spending time looking futilely 
for that elusive parking place. 

Northwestern's campus is 
not bad for these purposes, 
except for the last, but it lacks, 
almost everywhere, one small, 
life-giving particularity: it has' 
no humanity. No seats on 

Letter to the Editor - 

Dear Editor, 

I am not a male chauvinisi 
but according to the greatest 
book ever written, the Bible, 
Mr. Johnson is correct. 

It states in the book of 
Genesis, "and thy desire shall 
be to thy husband, and he 
shall rule over thee." (3:16) In 
verse 17 God says to Adam 
"because thou listened unto 
the voice of thy wife, and hast 
eaten of the tree, of which I 
commanded thee, saying, thou 
shalt not eat of it: cursed is the 
ground for thy sake; in sorrow 
shalt thou eat of it all the days 
of thy life." This means that 
because Adam listened to Eve 

that men are now condemned 
to exhausting labor, in order 
to make a living. 

If Adam would have said no 
to Eve, I do not believe the 
world would be in the present 
state that it's in. I don't 
believe the issue here is to 
whether or not women wear 
pants. I simply think that the 
man's word should be the 
final answer. Now take it, this 
is not saying that a man should 
not listen and discuss the 
woman's side of view on 
things, but that they should 
discuss problems and work 
them out together. 

Mike Deramee 


To the Editor: 

Re my letter on militant 
feminism (Jan. 31) I'd like to 
delve into the historical aspect 
of my position that feminism 
is destroying America. 

One cannot go further back 
than Adam and Eve, where 
Eve conned Adam into eating 
the forbidden fruit. The story 
of them is just that, a story, 
but it tells of the relationship 
of man and woman as one of 
war. When God sent them out 
of the garden, He said that the 
man would rule over the 
woman, which set the stage for 
a life of turmoil for mankind: 
the woman wasn't about to 
stay under the iron hand of 

In the New Testament, the 
story of Jesus describes His 
persecution by the feminist 
rulers of that world. But the 
story of Jesus is also just that, 
a story, for the entire 1611 
King James Bible is actually 
prophecy to be spiritually 
fulfilled this day. So there isn't 

a greater moment in history 
than now, where our. society 
has bottomed-out in feminine 
influence and the world is 
facing nuclear annihilation. 
This has come about because 
the influence of woman upon 
man has separated him from 

But we can redeem ourselves 
and personally know Jesus by 
walking His path of per- 
secution in resisting feminism. 
Only that way can a man learn 
of His trials in the Bible. But 
it's also important for a 
woman to do this, for the 
better she understands her 
own nature, the closer she is to 
God. To her, and him, 
wisdom can be understanding 
that the woman is social and 
that the man is creative by 
nature, and that the sup- 
pression of one by the other 
destroys love between the two. 
Moral: Make love, not war.

which to rest under an oak's

which to dine on a fresh spring

day, in fact, no place to be 

Once you have arrived at 
this conclusion, you begin to 
walk around with an extra eye, 
one that is open to the ways in 
which humanity could be 
brought to NSU. You pull 
others in to the mind's 
discussion, and everyone has 
something to say. Listen for a 
moment to those thoughts, 
those third-eye images which 
have arisen. 
No Place for Weary 

•There could be desks in the 
halls of Ryser -how many 
times a day do weary students 
prop themselves against the 
walls to rest or study while 
waiting for the next class? 

•Tables and chairs on the 
balcony of the Student Union 
Building, a potted tree or two, 
turning relatively unused space 
into a lovely meeting area for 
everyone, a sidewalk cafe in 
old Natchitoches. 

•An occasional park bench 
placed beneath the glorious 
trees that line our campus,- 
benches that invite student and 
faculty alike to rest awhile, 
become a part of the whole 
that makes up a great school. 

•Picnic tables and benches by 
the lake or near the various 
playing fields (or anywhere on 
campus that there is suf- 
ficiently open, yet shaded to 
provide a dining space). 
"Total Environment" 

What if our student 
organizations took a hand in 
the program and chose to 
contribute plants, trees, 
shrubs, bulbs, and time-all in 
the name of adding to the 
"splendor of our grass" and 
our home? There are enough 
plants and trees that need little 
or no upkeep (say for the price 
of a keg of beer or two), such 
as azaleas, forsythia, sprinf 
and summer bulbs. 

And how much more a pai 
of the school and campus 
would these contributors feel. J 
The current popular phrase; 
for it is "total environment,' 
and if our "total en-] 
vironment" could ba 
humanized, made real, made 
ready to accept those very real' 
humans who inhabit ouJ 
campus, how much moril 
human we might all become. 1

Lady Demons Destroy Hapless UALR 

The Lady Demons used a 
37-16 spurt in the last 13:06 of 
the first half to destroy the 
University of Arkansas-Little 
Rock 86-68 in Prather 

After playing a sort of 
lackluster first seven minutes 
and falling behind 14-9, the 
Lady Demons scored six quick 
points to move ahead and 
then used their patented fast 
break to race by the terribly 

outwomaned UALR squad 
and take a 46-30 halftime lead 
on a three point play by Annie 

Lady Demon coach Pat 
Pierson emptied her bench 
early in the second half as the 
Lady Demons upped their 
record to 10-8. 

Tracy Taylor led the Lady 
Demon rout with 21 points, 14 
rebounds, and three blocked 
shots. Lisa Carter added 17 

points and five rebounds in the 
victory and Lonnie Banks, 
Teressa Thomas, and Linda 
Grayson added 13, 12, and 10 
points respectively. 

Thomas continued her 
assault on the record books 
with nine assists and added 
two steals. Banks and Kim 
Paulk had four assists each 
while Grayson, Taylor, and 
Sandy Pugh each picked off a 
pair of steals.

Southern University used a 
36 of 46 showing from the free 
throw line, including 11 of 13 
in overtime, to nip the Lady 
Demons 90-85 in Prather 
Coliseum this past Thursday. 

After falling behind early 6-

pair of field goals each by Lisa 
Carter and Lonnie Banks, and 
a field goal apiece from 
Teressa Thomas and Tracy 
Taylor to pull ahead 15-10. 

The rest of the half was 
played virtually even, and a 
three point play by Thomas 
with 1 3 seconds left in the half 
gave the Lady Demons a 47-41 

The Lady Demons got into 
foul trouble early in the 
second half, and by the mid- 
point of the second half, every 
starter but Thomas was on the 
bench with four fouls, except 
for Carter who was there with 

A Linda Grayson basket

Lady Demons their biggest 
lead of the night, nine points, 
to make the score 64-55. 

Southern chipped away at 
the lead, and with just under 
six minutes to go in the game, 
the regulars were inserted back 
into the linup, with the Lady 
Demons clinging to a five- 
point lead, 72-67. 

The Lady Demons failed to 
make a field goal in the 
remainig time, and only made 
two foul shots as the Lady

Smith Leads Demons 
Past Mercer 75-70 

Yates Contract Extended 

The Demons were going 
after their second win of the 
week and 6'5 freshman 
Sylvester "Sly" Smith saw to 
it that they got it. 

Smith catapulted the 
Demons past the Mercer Bears 
to a 75-70 victory Thursday 
night when he scored 20 points 
to help the Demon cause. 

Smith explained his night, 
"I was just on. They were 
getting me the ball inside and I 
was just hitting. I went out 
there loose and it paid off." 

Smith explained the 
Demons' late season turn 
around, "At the beginning of 
the year we were just a bunch 
of junior college transfers and 
freshmen out there. Now we 
know each other better and we 
understand our teammates' 

Over half of Smith's points 
came in the first half and 
teammate Charles Nash 
helped keep the Demons going, 
scoring 20 points of his own. 

Smith explains his second 
half slump, "Charles (Nash) 
came in and really took charge 

in the second half and so I just 
laid back a little bit and played 
my game since he was hot. I 
always score better in the first 
half anyway." 

The lead see-sawed during 
the first half with the Demons 
proving, dominant building up 
a 7 point lead before the 
buzzer sounded. 

They built a 13-point lead 
during the first five minutes of 
the second half and kept their 
lead in double figures during 
the first 10 minutes of the 
second half. 

Mercer whittled the Demon 
lead down to two with less 
than three minutes left in the 
game. Clutch free throw 
shooting down the stretch 
helped the Demons extend 
their lead to as many as 10 
with 33 seconds left on the 

It was all downhill from 
there as NSU wrapped up their 
second TAAC victory in a 
week. A major ac- 
complishment for the young 
club that started off so poorly. 

Demons Drop 5 OT 
Game To Eagles 80-78 

It took a Prather Coliseum 
record five overtimes to keep 
Northwestern in the TAAC 
cellar Saturday when they 
battled Georgia Southern 
tooth and nail before finally 
falling, 80-78. 

Frederick Walker paced the 
Demons with 22 points in the 
tilt. Fellow Demons Sylvester 
Smith and Robert Anthony 
had 14 and 11 points 

It was a well rounded team 
effort by Yates' Demons with 
nearly everyone getting into 
the act. 

The club enjoyed as much as 
an 11 point lead in the first 
half. Sophomore Roy Roach 
hit a bucket at the buzzer to 
put the NSU lead at seven 
going into the locker room. 

Georgia Southern came out 
of the locker room and took 
the lead nearly nine minutes 
into the second half. The 
Eagles built a nine point lead 
before the Demons rallied 

from behind. 

A Robert Anthony steal and 
slam knotted the game at 58 
and that's where it stood when 
the first buzzer rang. 

After numerous bad calls by 
the officiating corps the game 
entered its fifth overtime. 

With four overtimes under 
their belt Northwestern tried 
to stall the contest and go for 
the last bucket in what turned 
out to be the last overtime. 
They nearly succeeded holding 
onto the ball for three and a 
half minutes before a Demon 
turnover sent Georgia 
Southern downcourt to try the 
same tactic on the Demons. 
Reggie Watson went to the 
free throw line for the Eagles 
after a Demon foul sent him to 
the charity stripe. He gave a 
free throw exhibition 
smashing the Demon's hopes 
of victory.

Speculation that Wayne 
Yates, head basketball coach, 
would be released at the end of 
the 1983-84 basketball season 
came to an abrupt halt this 
week when it was announced 
that he will be retained 
through the '84-'85 season. 

Yates' job appeared to be in 
jeopardy when his club 
stumbled to an unimpressive 
5-12 start. 

He has an overall winning 
percentage of .389 in his four 
years at NSU and a 44-72 

President Joe Orze gave 
Yates a vote of confidence 
when he said recently, "I am 
convinced that Coach Yates is 
taking the necessary steps to 
assure improvement and 
stability in Northwestern 
basketball next season." 

Coach Yates has added 
several major schools to the 
schedule, including power s 
Texas, Alabama, and 
Southern Methodist. 

Orze commented on the 
vote of confidence that he 
cast: "Frankly, Coach Yates 
came to me and expressed 

disappointment in the progress 
of the basketball program. 
After considering numerous 
factors, we reached an 
agreement that he would be 
given another year to 
demonstrate significant im- 
provement. He offered to step 
aside after next season if that 
goal is not reached." 

Another factor in Coach 
Yates' favor is the new Gulf 
Star Conference that will 
begin next season. 

Orze said the new Gulf Star 
"will provide competition 
against Louisiana and Texas 
teams that will result in more 
meaningful rivalries that the 
Trans America, which has 
teams in Georgia, Alabama 
and Arkansas." 

Another important 
factor that weighed in Yates' 
favor was his outstanding 
record before he came to 
Northwestern. He guided the 
Memphis State ballclub to 20 
wins per season in his first 
three seasons and fell one 
victory of 20 short in his 

fourth year. He is one of the 
five coaches to win 20 games. 

or more in their first three 
year s in , the Division I ranks.

Hitmen to Abound 

SGA to Sponsor 
Assassination Game 

NSU's SGA, in an attempt 
to expand student life, is 
sponsoring a game of 
assassination. Assassination is 
a new game that is making the 
rounds at many college 

In Assassination each player 
is given a toy gun with three 
darts and a victim to try and 
assassinate. Assassination 
makes each player a hit man 
and a victim at the same time, 
because while you are pur- 
suing someone else is pursuing 

Each assassin has a picture 
of his victim. The rules are 

simple. Try to assassinate the 
person whose picture you 
have.The only locations vJhfere 
individuals may not be shot 
are off campus and in an 
academic building. 

A prize will be awarded to 
the individual who is the 
overall survivor. To play costs 
each assassin $1. 

Anyone interested in 
playing should leave a picture, 
$1 and an index card at the 
Student Government 
Association office or the 
office of the dean of students 
in the Student Union.

Holy Cross Church — 
A Student Community 

By Diana Gratten 

Have you ever felt un- 
comfortable when you first 
started going to a new church? 
Did you wish that more of the 
people were in your age 
group? Did you wish that 
more students were present? 

Holy Cross Catholic Church 
on Second Street won't make 
you feel that way. It's a church 
where most of the 
congregation are students just 
like yourself. 

"Holy Cross church is like a 
parish within a parish," says 
Father Frederick Ponder, the 
parish priest. 

Holy Cross has a large 
meeting room for socials, a 
library for smaller meetings, a 
study, kitchen facilities, of- 
fices, and living quarters for 
the priest. 

One priest and one deacon, 
the Rev. Mr. Joseph Peltier, 
are always present to help 
students any way they can. 
Holy Cross offers students a 
chance to watch TV, study, 
relax, play the piano, drink 
coffee or hot chocolate, and 
simply enjoy the company of 
other students. 

Holy Cross also has several 
different programs available 

to aid in one's spiritual 

It will sponsor a Pre-Cana 
weekend for couples con-

A weekend retreat for 
young men has been planned

Barriers No Answer 

To: Dr. George Stokes, Vice-President of Univeristy Affairs 
Chief James Lee, Head of Northwestern Campus Security 
c/o Current Sauce 

Dear Sirs: 

I see in The Current Sauce that you gentlemen are among 
the proponents of a plan to build several gates at various 
entrances to the campus of Northwestern. 

Via this letter, I wish to place myself in friendly opposition 
to you and others who should seek to carry out this plan. 

My objection is twofold: one is the perceived capacity of a 
gate (or even a fence) to deter and to obstruct rapists, rabble- 
rousers, puddingsnammers, and other scofflaws bent on 
pillage, plunder and rapine simply because it is a gate (or 
fence) is indefensible on logical as well as practical grounds. 

Any person, especially one intent on mayhem and 
skulduggery, can effect an entry to this campus, and all the 
wardens, gates, constables, guard dogs and u?ber- 
sturmtuehrers in the world will not keep him out. 

If money is to be spent on security, then hire fulltime 
guards for each dorm and roving patrols for other campus 
buildings. That action would help reduce unemployment. 
Northwestern could even create a new kind of scholarship if 
students were used in a security implementation capacity. 
You could call the scholarship, "Demons-On-Patrol- 
Everywhere"-or "D.O.P.E." for short. 

My second objection is based in the principles of aesthetics. 
Gates, especially those designed by the state, are not pretty. 
Northwestern was once a pretty campus; that is, before the 
Cubist Architects ran amuck and created such creaking 
eyesores as Kyser Hall and that circular maze of rabbit 
warrens known as the Teacher Ed Center. 

So let's not add to an already blighted landscape several 
repulsive, concrete-brick and wrought iror (no doubt in the 
fleur-de-lis motif?) gates that serve no purpose but to annoy 
students and faculty and scare little furry things in the street. 

Symbolically, gates and the like dampen the spirit, lower 
morale, and provoke derision in the community. Gates 
represent containment and imprisonment while university 
means freedom and self-direction. Barriers of any kind are 
not the answer; nor should there by any barriers to our 
talking about them.... 

Now that I have announced my position on this matter, I 
should like to conclude by inviting you to consider a 
referendum to the student body whose well-being is to be 
principally affected by the gate proposal. Let the students 
make visible through the ballot their thoughts on GATES, 
and furthermore, let their decision be binding on the

This letter is in response to 
Messrs. Johnson and 
Deramee. As stated in many 
religious books, woman was 
made from the rib of man to 

By Jo R. Smith 

Some small amount of 
steam has been generated by 
recent letters to the editor, 
both written by men who are 
Christians. I think it is time 
for a Christian woman to 

You could discuss the topic 
of militant feminism from 
several angles, but since it has 
been approached as a 
Christian problem and 
scripture is cited for evidence, 
I shall take that approach, 

To begin, we should see 
God's original plan; "So God 
created man in his own image, 
in the image of God created he 
him; male and female created 
he them" (Gen. 1:27). This 
sentence might drive some 
strict grammarians batty, but 
this is the Spirit's way of 
saying that man is not ex- 
clusively male, that woman is 
also the image of God. 
Woman's Role 

His purpose for man (male 
and female) was "let them 
have dominion..." (Gen. 
1:26). God did not create 
woman as a subordinate 
helper, but as a help meet-one 
fit for Adam and of his own 

True, the devil, the man, 
and the woman were cursed. 
But there's good news for any 
human who has lived since the 
crucifixion and resurrection of 
Jesus the Christ. He broke all 
curses for anyone who will 
believe in Him by taking the 
curses to Himself on the cross 
and destroying them by His 

In fact, the Holy Spirit 
through Paul makes some 
startling statements about us: 
"If any man be in Christ, he is

walk by his side, not from his 
feet to be trod upon. 

What difference does it 
make if women wear pants 
instead of skirts? Men can 
wear kilts without causing 
social upheaval. Men in skirts 
are certainly more outrageous 
than women in jeans. 

As I see it, women have a 
stabilizing influence on men. 
Women don't start wars; men 
do. Women don't start the 
trend toward materialism; 
men did with the start of the 
Protestant Work Ethic. No 
wonder women are trying to 
have more sayso in the 
economy and government. 
Maybe we can fix some of the 
things men have screwed up. 

Not a women's libber, but a 
woman none the less.

a new creation... behold, all 
things are become new" (I 
Cor. 5:17); and "For ye are 
the sons of God by faith in 
Christ Jesus. There is neither 
Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, 
male nor female; for ye are all 
one in Christ Jesus" (Gal. 3: 

Branch of the true vine 

As new creations in Christ 
Jesus, we have been restored 
to God's original plan-neither 
first or second before Him, 
just "in Christ." And we have 
been restored because we have * 
believed Jesus is the Son of 
God, the Lamb who has taken 
away the sin of the world. We 
are, as the Holy Spirit says in 
scripture, a branch of the true 
Vine, a member of His Body, 
a living stone in the temple 
where He dwells. 

Those who have come to 
this knowledge by faith know 
also that our God does not 
change -Mai. 3:6, James 1:17, 
Heb. 13:8. Therefore, if God 
chose at one time to use a 
woman in an authoritative 
place, He could (and probably 
would) again. Have you 
heard of Deborah, the 
prophetess (King James' 
grammatical term for a 
prophet who is a woman) who 
judged Israel? 

Such was her authority 
(from God and recognized by 

males) that they went to her 
for judgment in what we 
would call civil matters. When 
word came from God to 
march against an enemy army, 
the captain and the men 
refused to go unless she rode 
with them. 

And what about Huldah, 
another prophetess, to whom 
the king and the high priest 
went for advice and 
judgment? Check out 
Priscilla, P„hjjebe, Mary, 
Tryphoema, and Tryphosa 
who work e d with Paul, not 
under him. Where males 
recognize Gods, anointing, 
harmony has reigned. 
.-God Gives Freedom to All 
A woman who knows who she 
is and what she is in Jesus has 
no need of militant feminism 
because she whom the Son 
makes free is free, and no man 
(person) can take away the 
freedom or the joy in that 
freedom since man did not 
give it. 

Men who recognize Jesus as 
Lord-not just Savior-have no 
problem with "feminism"- 
militant or otherwise. For in a 
woman they are looking for 
Jesus and the blessings He has 
prepared for mankind-and 
the package they come in is 
totally irrelevant.

Dear Editor: 

For the past 10 years the men of Kappa Alpha Order at 
NSU havesponsored an amateur boxing tournament. The 
proceeds from the tournament are donated each year to the 
Muscular Dystrophy Association, which is the national 
philanthropy of the Kappa Alpha Order. 

The KA Boxing Tournament for Muscular Dystrophy has 
become more successful each year, and the event set an all- 
time high for money raised for the MDA during last year's 
program. The $4,000 contributed in 1983 earned the brothers 
of Gamma Psi chapter of Kappa Alpha Order at Nor- 
thwestern the honor of making the largest contribution of all 
Kappa Alpha's 1 12 chapters throughout the United States. 

We would like to thank the Natchitoches townspeople, the 
students at NSU and the Natchitoches Beverage Company, 
which co-sponsored the tournament, for the tremendous 
support given last year's tournament. A very special thanks to 
those students who took an active part in the 1983 tour- 
nament by stepping into the boxing ring. 

With the support of the community and the students at 
Northwestern, we plan to usher the tournament into an even 
more successful second decade. 

The 10th annual Kappa Alpha Boxing Tournament for 
Muscular Dystrophy is scheduled for March 14-15 in Prather 
Coliseum. We urge students who are planning to box in this 
year's tournament to start training now. We also urge people 
throughout Natchitoches and Natchitoches Parish to begin 
making plans to attend one of the most colorful and en- 
tertaining sporting events ever held for charity in this region 

of the state. „. .

Linda Grayson responded 
to the first start of her college 
career by dumping in a career 
high 21 points to lead the Lady 
Demons to a 91-73 blowout of 
Nicholls State in Thibodaux. 

The Lady Demons trailed 
Nicholls early, falling behind 
25-22 with eight and a half 
minutes left in the first half. 

Teressa Thomas started a 
Lady Demon rally with a two- 
pointer from the outside, and 
after a Lonnie Banks repeat, 
Thomas stole the ball and 
raced downcourt unmolested 
for an easy layup. Linda 
Grayson added a three-point 
play and Thomas popped in 

another field goal as the Lady 
Demons ran off 13 straight 
points to take the lead they 
never relinquished. 

Sandy Pugh hit a short 
jumper with 40 seconds left to 
play in the first half to put 
NSU up 45-31. 

Nicholls scored the first six 
points of the second half, but 
shortly after that, Banks hit a 
pair of field goals and the 
Lady Demons blew the game 
wide open. 

A Grayson free throw gave 
the Lady Demons their largest 
lead of the night, 81-58. 

Besides her 21 points, 
Grayson added seven 

Second-Half Slump Drops Demons 

rebounds in just 29 minutes of 
playing time. Br.nks, the 
leading rebounder with eight, 
hit 14 points and had four 
steals, while Lisa Carter had 
12 points. 

Annie Harris had a perfect 
shooting night, going 4-4 from 
the field, and 3-3 from the 
foul line to wind up with 11 
points. Tracy Taylor, playing 
on bad ankles and limited to 
just 24 minutes of playing time 
hit 10 points, seven rebounds, 
and five assists, running her 
consecutive game double 
figures scoring streak to 37. 
Thomas added five assists and 
nine points before fouling out. 

Poor second- half play 
spelled defeat for NSU when 
they were outscored 50-30 at 
Hardin-Simmons Thursday 
night in an 80-62 loss. 

The Demons came out of 
the locker room ahead 32-30 
to start the second half, and 
scored the first bucket to go up 
by four. But from that point 
on it was all Hardin-Simmons 
who capitalized on poor 
Demon shooting. 

NSU seldom got a second 
chance at the bucket since they 
were outrebounded on the 
boards 37-25. 

The Demons shot under 40 
percent during the second half; 
hitting 1 1 of 30 from the field. 

Overall they shot 46 percent 
making 24 of 52 for 46 per- 

They weren't much better 
from the charity stripe making 
13 of 25. 

Leading bucket man for the 
Demons was Frederick Walker 

who had 10 points. Close 
behind him was Robert 
Anthony with nine points and 
DeShon Jenkins and Sylvester 
Smith each had seven. 

Houston Baptist Rolls Past Demons 

Houston Baptist scored 12 
unanswered points early in the 
second half, and the Demons 
never quite recovered, as the 
Huskies rolled to a 91-67 win 
over the Demons in Houston; 

The Demons trailed the 
Huskies by five at the half, 35- 
30, and by six 43-37, with just 
16:00 to play in the game. A 
Sylvester Smith foul sent 
Anicet Lovodrama to the line.

President Receives License 

Orze Flying High 

By Jeannie Broussard 

Following rainbows, finding 
pots of gold and buried 
treasure, being a hero, and 
soaring through the "friendly 
skies" like the birds are just a 
few of one's ideals and dreams 
for one's future. 

On Jan. 23, 1984, President 
Joseph Orze received his 
pilot's license. 

Orze had always wanted to 
fly as a kid. When he was old 
enough, he was commissioned 
in the Air Force; however, he 
flunked his flying physical 
because of an injury that left 

his right elbow with a slight 

Orze began his lessons with 
the Department of Aviation 
Science last summer. With no 
regular schedule of classes, 
and because of his duties as 
NSU president, it has taken 
him approximately six months 
to complete the program. 

Orze began his lesson under 
Larry Varnado, then switched 
to Randy Hora, a graduate of 

"I think it's a lot of fun," 
commented Orze. Orze plans 
to utilize his license for both 
pleasure and business.

On Feb. 14 visitors were 
welcomed to an open house in 
the new ones. 

Guests included 
representatives from various 
departments and former

Renaissance Festival 
Scheduled for April 

By Angelita Police 

NSU will host its first 
Renaissance Festival April 9- 
14. It is tentatively scheduled 
to be held in the area around 
the Old President's Home. 

The first part of the festival 
will include a vocal concert 
from the Famous Artists 
Series April 9 and a movie 
April 10. 

The movie, "A Man for All 
Season" is set during the reign 
of Henry VIII. After the 
movie, a panel, consisting of 
Ann Johnson, Neill Cameron, 
and Joseph A. Johnson, will 
discuss it. 

A Renaissance fair will be 
held April 11-14. It is intended 
to be a student-oriented ac- 
tivity, according to Joseph A. 
Johnson, associate professor 
of English. "The success of 
the fair will depend on the 
students," said Johnson. 

Competitions, games, 
entertainment, and booths will 

be planned by various school 
organizations and coordinated 
with Johnson's help. 

The fair will be patterned 
after historical English fairs. 
Students should wear 
medieval attire: robes of 
scholars, the green of archers, 
the blue or purple of nobility, 
or the rags of beggars. Ac- 
cording to Johnson, different 
beggars could be distinguished 
by their style of rags. 

The banquet speaker for the 
conference will be Dr. 
Magaret Pepperdene, 
chairman of the English 
Department and professor of 
English at Agnes Scott College 
in Decatur, Ga. Her subject 
will be the humanities and the 
liberal arts in the 1980's. 

Unlike previous con- 
ferences, the regular sessions 
of this year's conference will 
be open to students and non- 

eight typewritten pages. The! 
winner will receive a prize of 
$25 to be donated by Dr. Dean 
Johnson of the Department of 
History, Social Sciences and 
Social Work. 

Papers may be those 
prepared for other classes, if 
appropriate. They will become 
the property of the Depart- 
ment of History, Social 
Sciences and Social Work. The 
winning paper will be sub- 
mitted to the student paper 
section of the Mid South 
Sociological Association at its 
annual meeting in Monroe in 
November 1984. 

Judges will be Johnson, Dr. 
Joe Dillard of the Department 
of English, and the Rev. 
Richard Taylor -of Trinity 
Episcopal Church. Deadline 
for submission to Johnson in 
Kyser Hall, Room 343-E is 
May 1, 1984. The winner will 
be announced May 6, 1984.

Baptist Student Union Offers 
Fun, Fellowship to Students 

By Eddie Norris 

"When I came to NSU as a 
freshman, I was able to get on 
the right foot and become a 
part of a good crowd of people 
in a very nice organization," 
stated Joel Langton, a 
freshman mass com- 
munication major. 

He, along with other 
students, is enthusiastic about 
the opportunities at the 
Baptist Student Union. 

"We call ourselves the chain 
because we try to provide the 
link between NSU students 
and the local baptist chur- 
ches" said Myra Gulledge, 
Baptist student director. The 
BSU is at 810 College Ave. 
across the street from the

Gulledge was appointed 
director of the BSU by the 
Louisiana Baptist Convention 
in 1951. She acquired her 
master of divinity degree at 
Southwestern Baptist 
Seminary in Fort Worth. 

Gulledge said that the 
present location of the BSU is 
the third location since its 
foundation in 1926. Former 
locations of the organization 
include old Bullard Hall and 
what is now the Kappa Sigma 

Weekly activities include a 
vespers worship service at 6 
p.m. Mondays, a Bible study 
at 6 p.m. Tuesday, a noon 
encounter meal on Wed- 
nesdays, and "Thursday night 
thing" (fun and fellowship) 
Thursday evenings which costs 
50 cents. 

Annual activities held at the 
BSU are a fall retreat, a fall 
welcome, after-game 
fellowships for students after 
each home football game, and 
state-wide student con- 

Still other activities are an 
international house for foreign 
students remaining over the 
Christmas break, a state- wide 
basketball tournament on 
March 10 to be held in Prather 
Coliseum and the P.E. Majors 
building, a spring bang on 
March 13, and a spring 
assembly in April. 

Gulledge stresses that 
students "learn how to deal 
Wlth getting along in life or 
Preparing for life." 

Brad Bates, a junior music 
m ajor and president of the 
°5»U says "the BSU is a fun 
P'ace to be with friends and a 
§°od program which teaches 

Duke Terrell, a senior music 
major, appreciates the 
organization for helping him 
to take what he knows about 
himself and expand from that 

A sophomore nursing 
major, Kelly Farley, says "this 
atmosphere reduces the 
pressures of school. I can relax 
and study here at my con- 

Karen Sanders, a 
sophomore journalism major, 
says "the BSU adds to 
Christian growth and is an 
outlet for sharing with others 
what Jesus Christ is about." 

All the students feel that, if 
the BSU were not a part of 
their lives, they would 
probably miss their state-wide 
fellowships, the home-church 
feeling, growth opportunities 
and the spiritual enrichment 
needed to cope with life. 

The BSU is open from 8 
a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday 
through Fridays and has 
extended hours on weekends. 

The BSU family "extends 
an invitation to anyone to 
attend the establishment at 
anytime" David and Lisa 
Adcock are host and hostess. 

Sing alongs are a popular activity for many visitors at the BSU.

If Not Your Roommate. . . 

...Then Whom 
Can You Trust? 

Last semester, the alleged raping incidents left most of 
the Northwestern community uneasy. Students who 
previously had not been adhering to sensible practices of 
safety suddenly became more aware of the importance of 
keeping themselves out of danger. In light of the more 
positive outcomes of the unfortunate events, we began to 
see that safety was becoming more of a concern of the 
NSU students. Resident assistants in the dormitories 
became even more strict about locking doors after hours so 
that a late-arriving resident had to use his after hours key 
or open the combination lock at the back door. It no 
longer became easy to get in at the nearest door because it 
had either been propped open by a rock or was very simple 
to jerk open. 

One dorm in particular, Varnado Hall, took extra 
precautions to insure the continued safety of its residents. 
Signs on the back doors reminded residents that security 
was their business and that anyone caught jeopardizing the 
safety of others by propping doors open, etc., would be 
faced with severe disciplinary action. 

A new front door at Varnado, one more strong and 
less easy to jerk or prop open, replaced the old one at the 
main entrance. (Unlike the previous door, this new one is 
rather ugly, but it better serves the more important pur- 
pose of security). 

One of the two coed dorms on campus, Varnado has 
been referred to by residents as having a family-like at- 
mosphere. Residents claim that they "watch out for each 
other." If this is so, then we are puzzled, because a recent 
incident at Varnado Hall seemed to indicate otherwise. 

On February 8, between 8 and 9 p.m., someone or some 
group stole the panic bar from the back door of East 
Varnado, the residence wing for men. The panic device is 
the bar that one uses to open a door when exiting. All that 
it took to steal this bar was a few short minutes and a 
screwdriver to remove four screws. 

But why should we care? A new bar was installed the 
next day. This new bar costs $348.00, and eventually costs 
of that nature are passed on to us, all because of the 
stupidity of a fellow student. It would seem absurd that a 
resident of Varnado, of the "family-like atmosphere", 
would ' be unconcerned about the security of his fellow 

Ironic, isn't it? 

Speaking Up 

Five Weeks Late for Class 

By:Neill Cameron 

On February 7, I received 
two students into my English 
102 class. More precisely, they 
were placed into my 102 class. 
One claims she withdrew 
during the fall semester, re- 
entered this spring in a 
sophomore class, and finally 
was told she must complete 

Now I have her -- and this is 
the fifth week of the term. 

The other claims he just got 
back into the country, got 
some bad advisement or some 
such other excuse. Now I have 
him — and this is the fifth week 
of the term. 

The import of this piece is 
not concerned with excuses for 
late entrants nor with 
warranties nor justifications; 
it addresses a problem that has 
reached pandemic proportions 
at Northwestern. And the 
gravamen of my charge is that 
the late entrance of students 
into class has a deleterious 
effect upon the other students, 
who have been in attendance 
since day one. 

They are fully justified in 
feeling that the university 
favors some students while 
discriminating against others. 
And I as a teacher can do 
nothing to quell the resent- 
ment that is bound to arise 
from the perceived partiality. 

Furthermore, I cannot in 
good conscience hold my 
students accountable for their 
absences. I should think most 
of them now wish to have their 
previous absences erased and 
start with a clean slate - say at 
about the fifth week. 

Letter to the Editor 

To the Editor: 

I am responding to the letter 
by Wayne L. Johnson of Jan. 
31, 1984. It was a blatant and 
ludicrous attack on the rights 
of women using out-of- 
context Bible quotations to 
further a sexist view. 

The Bible has been quoted 
and interpreted for in- 
numerable motives, but to use 
the Bible to attack feminism 
stretches my imagination 
beyond its perimeters. 

If books of wisdom are to 
be used as guides in con-

scientious living, then let's 
make a postivie interpretation 
rather than twist their meaning 
to serve as an accomplice to 
ignorance. Ignorance is 
defined by Webster as "lack 
of knowledge, unawarenes,," 
also a suitable description of 

"The ability to learn or 
understand from experience" 
describes intelligence. It seems 
Mr. Johnson has not ex- 
perienced discrimination, or 
his view would be much less 
judgmental. I am reminded of 
the saying. "I should not' 
criticize a man until I have 
walked a mile in his shoes." 

Rfcspect between women 
and men, races, nations and 
peoples will only arise by one's 
attempt to understand the 
other's experience. 

Lurane Francis 

This practice derives, I 
suspect, from the fact that on 
the one hand the university 
does not enforce existing 
admission requirements, and 
on the other hand, will ac- 
commodate any student no 
matter what excuse or 
justification is ventilated. This 
is, therefore, a shameful, slip- 
shod, and to me--who has to 
play catch-up with the student- 
-an annoying practice. 

It makes me look bad. And 
when through no fault of my 
own I am made to look bad, I 
tend to get atrabilious 
dyspepsia and when I get that, 
it is high time some changes 
were made . . . 

Please examine the 
following logic and tell me if I 
am in error: if a student can 
enter a course in the fifth week 
and obtain all the privileges 
and rights of the regularly 
enrolled student, then why not 
allow admission in the sixth 
week? Or in the tenth week? 
Or twelth? Or, carrying the 
logic to its conclusion, why 
not allow the student to stay at 
home and mail the assign- 
ments to him? 

My subterranean suspicion 
beneath all this murky 
business is that the university, 
wanting money, will not refuse 
a body, no matter what 
condition it is in nor how 
dilatory its arrival. 

But to iterate my principal 
concern — my students come 
first, and I will teach the tardy 
as well as the punctual. But the 
university, by its uneven 
and/or unenforced and/or 
arbitrary class admission 
policy, has made me a party to 
a kind of lie — that is, students 
come to this institution ex- 
pecting fair and impartial 
treatment, and instead they see 
privilege being doled out on 
the left and the right hand. 

I repeat, I am tired of ex- 
plaining and justifying and 
defending that which 
emanates from elsewhere 
outside the classroom but 
obtrudes into my business. 

Therefore, I call on you to 
jerk the slack out of the line. 
The only corrective I see is to 
empower the teacher to refuse 
entrance to students, no 
matter what the excuse, after a 
certain date. I favor the third 
or fourth class day myself. If a 
student has not got his 
business in order by then, he 
shall just have to go fish. 

And while I am at it, some 
serious consideration should 
be given to the abolishment of 
the entire attendance policy at 
Northwestern. It, like the class 

admissions policy, may have 
been originated with the best 
of intentions; but it has 
become a sham. 

Athletes are notorious for 
abusing it, and every student 
knows that he can concoct a 
rationale that will get his 
absence excused. So why 
bother with it? At the school I 
attended, roll was called the 
first day and never again 

If it can be done in one place 
... but why explain the ob-

professor of English, is a well

Verse Worse 
Than Bigot's 

Dear Lisa, 

The proper manner in which 
to reply to letters such as that 
ignorant Bible thumper, 
Wayne Johnson, is either no 
reply at all or a satirical one. 

Having undertaken the 
latter course of action, I hope 
you will find it a humorous 
enough response to print in the 
Current Sauce. 

Yours Truly, 
John Levenhagen 


Woman, you are the most 
contemptible creature of all 

Because of you from grace 
did Adam fall 

There is no reconciliation 
possible now 

Mans return to Eden God 
won't allow. 

How little of virtue you 
really know 

When among man the seeds 
of lust you sow 

With your bodies you plot 
to dominate him 

Against such weapons his 
chances are slim* 

You have tricked man with 
your kisses and smiles 

Stealing his pants, jobs, and 
money all the while. 

Then you try to coerce him 
into staying at home 

To cook, wash, and clean 
until the kids are grown. 

O Woman, vou vile, evil 

What terrible woes to man 
you bring 

It was to you the snake did 


Now the path to Hell will 
man you show.

Turner, Jayroe Lead NLU 
Past Lady Demons 100-83 

By Joe Cunningham 

Doug Turner and Larry 
Jayroe led the 18th ranked 
Northeast Lady Indians to a 
100-83 victory over the Lady 
Demons in Monroe last 
Monday night. 

Larry and Doug might 
sound like strange names for a 
couple of female basketball 
players, and indeed, they are. 
The bottom line is that they 
aren't basketball players, they 
are the guys who "refereed" 
the game, a game that saw 
lour l ady Demons foul out, 
and two more get called with 
four fouls. 

You can usually find at least 
a few things to get you riled up 
at the referees during a typical 
40 minute ballgame, but for 
the Lady Demons, their 
coaches, and the few fans who 
made the trip to Monroe, you 
really couldn't find a few 
things thai the officials did 

The Lady Demons were " 
whistled for 33 fouls com- 
pared to just 18 for NLU. In 
the first half alone, it was NSU 
15 fouls, NLU 4. The Lady 
Indians went to the free throw 
line 47 limes and made 33. 
Northwestern went to the line 
22 times and made 17.

The game started out with 
the Lady Demons taking a 14- 
4, and then 20-10 lead over 
Northeast. Then it was time 
for the whistles. Over the 
course of the next 1 1 minutes, 
the Lady Demons were 
whistled for 12 fouls, and one 
spurt where the Lady Indians 
went to the foul line six 
straight times down the court. 

With that decided ad- 
vantage, NLU pulled out to a 
46-35 halftime lead. 

The second half was no 
better for the Lady Demons 
who dropped to 11-10 on the 

Assistant coach James 
Smith said that he thought the 
Lady Demons "played well 
enough to win," but they just 
didn't get any breaks. 
"Talent-wise we were equal," 
he added. 

The Lady Demons were led 
by the games high scorer Tracy 
Taylor with 32 points and 16 
rebounds. Teressa Thomas 
had 17 points for NSU while 
Lonnie Banks had 16 markers. 

Val Williams pulled down 
six rebounds while Thomas 
added five assists and three 
steals for the night.

McNeese ruined Nor-

opener Wednesday when they 
tagged the third loss of the 
young season on the Demons. 

NSU jumped out to a 1-0

McNeese tied the score in the 
top of the second. 

The Cowboys then jumped 
on Northwestern pitchers for 
seven runs in the fifth inning. 
NSU moundsmen hurt their 
own causes with nine walks for 
the afternoon. 

John Kowalski took the loss 
for NSU. He gave up one hit, 
struckout three, and walked 

Coach Herbie Smith 
commented on McNeese's 
domination of Northwstern: 
"They're one of those teams 
that just have our number. 
Last year they beat us five 
times, yet we beat Tech" (the 

team that won the Southland 

"We beat Tulane and US1 
last year, two of the best team 
in the state. We finished beta

Demons Downed By NLU 

It was a seesaw battle for 
Northwestern and Northeast 
for the first 12 minutes Feb. 
13, but the seesaw broke and 
the Demons were left with the 
short end of the stick, 80-53. 

The lead changed hands five 
times during the early goig 
before the Indians got things 
moving. The Demons were 
within three points at the 7:26 
mark, but that was as close as 
they were going to get. 

NLU proceeded to blow it 
wide open. Mike Vining, NLU 
head coach had emptied his 
bench before the game was 
over. Indian Bruce Williams 
did the most damage to the 
Demons' cause with 20 points.

Demons Drop Two to Lamar 

Lamar University improved 
its early season baseball record 
to 7-1 here Sunday by 
sweeping Northwestern State 
7-3 and 5-3. The Demons are 
now 1-6 on the year. 

Lamar got just four hits in 
each contest, bur received help 
from the Demon defense that 
committed five errors in the 
two games, including four 
miscues in the final contest. 

In the opening game the 
Cardinals scored three runs in 
both the third and fourth 
innings to offset an early 2-0 
Demon lead. Both teams had 
four hits in the game. Brian 
Bettis had two hits and an RBI 
for the Demons while Brian 
McPherson was one for two 
with an RBI. 

In the second contest Lamar 
scored four times in the second 
inning and made that stand 
up, holding off a late Demon 
rally that saw Northwestern 
score all of its runs in the final 

In the seventh Scott 
Huscroft and David Reynolds 
walked, and after a strikeout 
Billy Stevenson singled in one 
run. After a double steal Bettis 
drove in two runs with his 

third hit of the game. After 
another walk the Cardinals goi 
a ground ball to end the 

Jay Lavespere took the loss 
for the Demons in the first 
game, his first decision of the 
season. John Lowalski saw his 
record fall to 0-2 with the 
second game loss. 

Northwestern will be at 
home to host Southwestern 
LA on Wednesday.

Demons Sign 20 Prepsters to Scholarships 

After signing 20 prep 
players to letters of intent on 
Wednesday, Northwestern 
Coach Sam Goodwin said he 
was pleased with the crop of 
players his staff has signed. 

Goodwin also added that 
the Demons have a few 
scholarships left, but that he 
wasn't sure if they would be 
used at this time. 

"I'm happy with the players 
we signed," said Goodwin of 
his list, which included five all- 
state players from Louisiana 
and two from Arkansas. 
Overall we got some kids at 
the positions we needed and 
we feel we added some size 
with these players." 

The five all-state players 
from Louisiana include center 
Renee Whitmore of Sim- 
mesport, wide receiver Frank 
Allen of Alexandria-Peabody, 
running back Gerald Lucas of 
Alexandria-Bolton, linebacker 
Mike O'Neal from Springhill 
and defensive back Rusty 
Slack of Springhill. 

The two all-state players 
from Arkansas include wide 
receiver Jim Taylor from Mills 
High in Little Rock and Mike 
Steele from Conway High 
School. Those were the only 
two players from Arkansas to 
sign with Northwestern. 

Goodwin and his staff also 
signed three players from 
Texas, including linemen Cal 

Brown from Marshall High 
and Mitch Norton from 
Carthage High, along with 
defensive back Kurt Wilson 
from Garland High School in 
Along with the five 

Louisiana all-state players, 
Goodwin signed 10 other 
players from the Bayou state. 
Those recruits include running 

back Lee Robinson and 
defensive back Kevin Benson 
from Springhill, defensive 
lineman Tremel Hamilton 
from Haynesville, linebacker 
Sidney Thissel from 
Jonesboro-Hodge, offensive 
lineman Chris Wells from 
Bossier City Parkway, 
linebacker Griffin Baker from 
Bonnabel High in Metairie, 

from St. Mary's in Nat- 
chitoches, defensive back 
Kevin Ambres from Bunkie, 
defensive back Adrian 
Saldana from Shreveport Fair 
Park and defensive end Henri 
Wesley from Sheveport's 
Captain Shreve High School. 

"We wanted to get a big 
play threat and feel like we did 

in Frank Allen and Jim 
Taylor," continued Goodwin. 
"Allen is as good a receiver as 
I saw this year, he can do alot 
of things on the football field. 
Our primary concern was at 
linebacker and in the defensive 
line and we feel like the players 
we signed will help us in those 
two areas." 

Cowboys Sweep 
Demons in Baseball 

Men, Women Split 

The Northwestern baseball 
team just couldn't get it 
together Feb. 14 when they 
were swept by the McNeese 
State Cowboys in the season 
opener of both teams. 

NSU jumped out to a one- 
run lead in the first inning, but 
that was turned into a two-run 
deficit in the Cowboys' half of 
the same inning. The Cowboys 
added four more to that in the 
second to go ahead, 7-1 . 

The Demons put together 
scoring rallies in the fifth and 
the sixth innings, scoring one 
and four runs respectively. 

It just wasn't enough, 
however, as the Cowboys 
rolled past the Demons 12-6. 

It was just as easy for the 
Cowboys in the second game

Opening of Union Station 
Scheduled for March 20 

Northwestern's long-await- 
ed coffeehouse, Union 
Station, will open March 20, 
says Charlene Elvers, Student 
Union Governing Board 

The opening will be one 
highlight of a week-long 
schedule of events planned for 
March 19-23 called "Mid- 
Term Blitz." 

Located on the first floor of 
the Student Union, near the 
games area, Union Station is 
decorated like a train depot. 

It has been a collective 
project of the SUGB Research 
and Development Committee, 
made up of the organization's 
seven representatives-at-large. 

The committee is headed by 
Stephanie Samuels, second 
vice-president, who says that 

Union Station was first en- 
visioned three years ago by the 
representatives of the 1980-81 
SUGB as a place for students 
to enjoy entertainers and be 
with friends in an intimate 

To build Union Station, a 
portion of the games area was 
blocked off. The coffeehouse 
will contain a stage, a booth 
for disc jockeys, and a bar for 

Samuels said that Union 
Station will not serve alcohol 
daily, but may serve beer at 
some SUGB events. 

During Mid-Term Blitz, 
NSU students can have their 
portraits made computer-style 
on March 19. Computer 
Portraits, Inc. will be in the 

Student Union Ballroom from 
1 1 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day. 

On Wednesday, the SUGB 
is sponsoring a Swima-Cross 
with the American Red Cross 
in Nesom Natatorium. 
Students who can swim laps 
for the Red Cross can receive 
t-shirts, and the student 
swimming the most laps will 
receive a large trophy, Elvers 
said. . ' 

Tom Deluca, a hypnotist 
popular among college 
students, will make a return 
visit at 8 p.m. on March 22 in 
the Student Union Ballroom. 

Winding up Mid-Term Blitz 
will be an afternoon of Fun 
Olympics co-sponsored by 
Intramurals. Rounding out the 
day will be an outdoor concert 
by a local band, Free Lantz. 

Just A Few More Finishing Touches 

NSU's coffeehouse, Union Station, is almost complete.

President Orze Says Rumors Untrue 

By Darlene Winslow 

Of all the stories about 
President Joseph Orze, only 
one is true; he is not going to 
leave NSU. 

The rumors apparently 
started while Orze was at- 
tending a meeting of the 
American Association of State 
Colleges and Universities, of 
which he is on the board of 

directors, in Bel Harbor, Fla. 
Afterv i he took a week's 
vacation in Bel Harbor. 

Upon his return, Orze 
found rumors that he had been 
in Syracuse, NY, seeking the 
position of chancellor at 
Syracuse University. 

Orze said he had no in- 
tentions of leaving NSU, but 
since there were rumors, he 

said, smiling, "I'm glad they 
picked a good university." 
Orze added that he knows the 
Chancellor of Syracuse 
University, Melvin Egerzs, 
who has no intentions of 

When asked how he felt 
about them Orze said, "In my 
position, I am target for

Transportation to and from 
Destin will not be provided by

is merely acting as an agent for 
Summit Tours. 

"It's really not a good idea 
to provide transportation for 
the trip because once you get 
there, ou'H be wanting to go 
to different places. By fur- 
nishing your own tran- 
sportation, you are free to 
come and go as you please*" 
said Staci Lafitte, SUGB first 

Students may sign up for the 
trip in Student Union 214. A 
$50 downpayment is due at 
this time, in addition to the 
$20 damage deposit. 

There will be a meeting for 
all students planning to go on 
the trip at 7 p.m. March 27 in 
Student Union 321. At this 
time, the remaining balance of 
$109 must be paid in full. This 
meeting is mandatory. 

Lafitte said that this is the 
first time for the SUGB to 
sponsor trips for students, 
adding that "other trips may 
also be planned for the 
future," possibly during the 
winter months for skiing.

Language Lab Offers 
Help for Students 

By Daphne A. DeVcrger 

The Anli-Lab--so called 
because of its informal at- 
mosphcrc-has reopened for 
spring, and tutors invite 
students to drop for help in 
English and speech. 

Officially named the 
Multidisciplinary Com- 
munications Center, the Anti- 
Lab in Kyser Hall Room 339 
oilers the one-on-one help 
lhat isn'i available in regular 

"Individual problems thai 
cannot be dealt with in the 
classroom can be dealt with 
here," said Dr. log Dillard, 
director of the lab. "The Ami- 
Lab is hot to replace the 
classes, but lo supplement 

Dillard, the author of six 
books on linguistics, sees the 
lab as a medium through 
which "students can gain 
competency in speaking, 
reading, and writing standard 

Myrna Schexnider, one Of 
the lab supervisors, graduated 
from NSU in December with a 
1LA. in speech. She knows the 
importance of using standard 

"It's that old 'Pygmalion'- 
'My l air Lady' theme. You 

can have a 4.0 when you go 
out into the world, but if you 
can't speak well, you ain't 
gonna get the job!" 

Carolyn Lee, graduate 
assitant in the lab, has a B.A. 
in English. She spoke of the 
problems students have with 
writing paragraphs. 

"Most of the students have 
a problem with the mechanics 
writing. Once the students 
have a little one-on-one in- 
struction, (hey realize what 
they're doing wrong and learn 
how to correct the mistakes." 

The other tutors in 'the lab', 
I ihda Verrett and Daphne 
DeVerger, are both un- 
dergraduates studying for 
degrees in journalism with 
minors in speech. 

"The Ami-Lab" is open 
from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday 
through Thursday, and closed 
for lunch. On Friday the lab 
closes at noon. 

Tutors are usually not very 
busy in the early weeks of the 
semester, but business picks 
up as finals near. 

Dr. Dillard feels that 
"students don't think about 
their problems until the last 
couple of weeks are near." By 
ihen it is sometimes too late. 

Study Hour 

Jerome and Johnn Cox receive tutoring in the Anti-Lab from Carolyn Lee, graduate 
assistant. The lab is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and is 
closed during lunch hour. It closes at noon on Friday.

Birth Rates Plague Third World 

By Karen Sanders 

Developing countries need 
educated people and lower 
birth rates . according to a 
United Nations population 

Dr. John Karefa-Smart, 
former foreign minister of 
Sierra Leone, a West African 
nation, said that educating 
citizens of developing 

countries improves conditions 
there. He was a Distinguished 
Lecturer Feb. 21 . 

After his speech, Dr. 
Karefa-Smart said he is 
pleased that NSU is educating 
a number of students from 
such Third W orld countries as 
Nigeria, Indonesia, Thailand, 
and Jordan. 

Most of NSU's 200 in- 
ternational students are in 
technological curricula, ac- 
cording to Jerry Vroegh, 
instructor at the American 
Language and Orientation 

"In Africa, the population 
increases 4 percent a year and 
will double in 20 years," said 
Dr. Karefa-Smart.. "Most 
mothers have five to eight 

Solutions to the population 
problems given by Dr. Karefa- 
Smart jnclude these: 

1. Educating parents to limit 
their families to the number 
they can support. 

2. Teaching methods of 
birth control. 

Smait said both resources 
and the quality of life are 
decreasing in Africa. 

He did give encouragement 
by saying that efforts to 
stabilize world wide 
population growth have begun 
to make an impact on the 

A political refugee, Karefa 
Smart was a leader in the 
struggle that ended with the 
independence of Sierra Leone. 
He fled his country after a 
coup d'etat overthrew the 
government he served. 

"We decided," said 
Nicholls, "not to select a name 
simply for the sake of taking 
one. What we are really 
looking for is a name that 
would lend itself toward a 
theme. None of the entries so 
far accomplish this, so we 
have extended the contest." 

The new deadlines for entry 
will be March 21. 

However, many of the 
entries, if not adaptable to a 
theme, are quite original. 
"The Devil's Food Inn" and 
"Pandemonium," among 
others are all related to the 

NSU mascot. 

"What the cafeteria res 
needs is a name which can

Enrollment Figures Show 4.7 Percent Increase 

Northwestern's spring 
semester enrollment this year 
of 6,033 is a 4.7 percent in- 
crease over the spring term 
registration figure of 5,762, 
according to NSU registrar 
^r. Ray Baumgardner. 

Baumgardner reported that 
there are enrollment increases 
this spring in all four un- 
dergraduate classes, and the 
total count of freshmen, 
sophomores, juniors, and 
seniors is 4,518, an increase of 
5.8 percent over the 1983 
spring semester undergraduate 
enrollment of 4,267. 

Freshman enrollment in- 
creased from 1,893 to 2,020, 
or 6.6 percent. Sophomore 
enrollment is up 9.1 percent 
from 758 to 827. Junior class 
enrollment climbed one

that our retention efforts 
are taking hold." 

percent from 673 to 680, and 
senior class enrollment is up 
from 943 to 991, or five 

Graduate School enrollment 
remained stable with 1,396 

students registered this spring 
in comparison to 1,407 
enrolled in graduate studies in 
the spring of 1983. 

Male and female enrollment 
counts increased thir; year over 
the spring of 1983. Nor- 
thwestern has 2,426 male 
students this spring compared 
to 2,286 last year, and female 
enrollment increased to 3,607 
from 3,476 last spring. 

Enrollment by colleges this

in Arts and Sciences, 482 in 
Education, 896 in Nursing, 
2,127 in Basic Studies and 
1,396 in Graduate Studies and 

Northwestern president Dr. 
Joseph J. Orze called the 
spring term enrollment in- 
crease ' 'extremely positive, 
because it reflects growing 
success in both the recruitment 
of new students and the 
retention of students who 
enrolled at the university in 
recent years." 

Orze said the freshrrm 
enrollment of 2,020 "is the 
largest spring semester 
freshman registration in a 
number of years, and this 
reflects Northwestern's in- 
creased emphasis on the 
recruitment of outstanding 
high school graduates."

The Northwestern president 
said he is "equally proud of 
the successful retention rate 
that is evident in the spring 
term enrollment figures." He 
said increases in every un- 
dergraduate class "demon- 
strate that our retention ef- 
forts are taking hold." 

Orze expressed "particular 
satisfaction with the 9.1 
percent increase in the 
sophomore class, because it 

reflects retention of the large 
class of freshmen attracted to 
the university last year." 

Northwestern's spring term 
enrollment is down only 224 
students from the fall semester 
registration count of 6,257. 
"That 3.5 percent decline 
from fall to spring is the 
lowest enrollment drop 
between semesters at Nor- 
thwestern in years," Orze 
said, "and it is much lower 

than the normal decline 
nationwide from the fall term 
to the spring semester at 
colleges and universities." 

Orze said Northwestern's 
student credit hour count "is 
substantially higher this spring 
than in the spring semester of 
1983, and that is significant,

•Ten million children die each year before reaching their 
first birthday. 

•The average life expectancy for both males and females in 
the land-locked African nation of Chad is 40.8 years, the 
lowest in the world. In 1980, Chad's population was 
4,455,000. Chad's population will be about 7,063,000 by the

•In Africa, populations are increasing at the rate of nearly 
4 percent each year. This means that in little more than 20 
years, the population will have doubled. 

•Of more than four billion people that live in the world, 2.6 
billion live in Asia. 

These figures have been compiled by the United Nations 
Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA). The UNFPA was 
established in 1969 by the United Nations to assist in 
promoting awareness of population problems in both 
developed and developing countries and possible strategies to 
deal with them. 

Last Tuesday, Northwestern participated in the UNFPA- 
sponsored World Population Day. As part of the 
Distinguished Lecturer Series, Dr. John Karefa-Smart, a 
former director general of the World Health Organization, 
outlined the problems of a rapidly increasing g'obal 
population growth rate. 

Karefa-Smart said that many people in developed countries 
such as the United States are not aware of the growing 
population rates (and by the relatively small attendance at 
last week's lecture this appears to be the case at Northwestern.) 

Population growth affects us all; the nations of our world 
are inter-dependt nt. Seventy percent of the raw materials we 
utilize are impoi led from other parts of the world. 

In recent years, modern science and technology have 
decreased the infant mortality rate. Populations continue to 
increase because prolific child-bearing in developing countries 
has not ceased. 

Third World cities are overcrowded and underdeveloped 
because they lack resources to meet increasing demands for 
such tilings as water, electricity, and education. Eighty 
percent of the people in most developing countries are 

If there were a similar growth in productivity, growing 
populations would not be a problem. 

According to Karefa-Smart, the United States gives less 
than one percent of our total GNP in foreign aid. That 
amounts to approximately $1 for every $100 produced. Much 
of these funds are for defense spending. This really works to 
our benefit because Third World countries spend those 
donated dollars to purchase American-made military hard- 

As the U.S. defense industry feasts, children starve.

Speaking Up 

Writer Challenges Independents 

By Leslie Gregory

This spring the students of Nor- 
thwestern may come to think of such 
occurrences as commonplace. April 9-14, 
the Northwest Louisiana Renaissance 
Festival will be held on our campus. 
While it will consist partially of an 
academic conference Thursday through 
Saturday, the rest of the week, and even 
certain parts of those days, we will be 
hosting the Renaissance Fair. 

This fair, with its proposed booths and 
entertainment ideas, such as games and 
plays, will be an activity during which all 
of Northwestern's students, not only 
those belonging to social organizations, 
can show school spirit. 

The fair, co-ordinated by Joseph A. 
Johnson, associate professor of English, 
will be one of the most deserving and 
entertaining functions that our college 
will hold during our entire school year 
career. Therefore, we, the independent 
students of NSU, should take heed of our 
charge and join forces with Johnson and 
his assistants, and make this fair the most 
we possibly can. 

"Just what exactly is she going on and 
on about?" you're probably asking 

Well, for too long now students who 
are not members of sororities and 
fraternities have taken possibly the easier 
road and not become involved in school 
activities. Perhaps this was due to lack of

any activities that we felt welcome to 
participate in, but now we have the 
chance and are being sincerely invited to 
participate and contribute. 

In fact, I am challenging other in- 
dependents !'ke myself, as well as clubs 
and organizations on campus, to give to 
the Renaissance Fair their all, and to 
make the hard work of so many pay in a 
successful project. 

Johnson is looking for a lot of good 
men and women to take part in the fair. 
His proposal of possible activities in- 
cludes booths, selling everything from 
kisses to goodies that would be found in a 
witch 's or sorcerer's shop; foods ranging 
from hot cross buns to, turkey legs; and 
games for everyone. 

Johnson's cast of characters sounds 
none too boring, either; from musicians 
and poets, gypsies, bar maids, priests, and 
executioners, to, of course, lords, ladies, 
and gallants. 

The Renaissance Fair is something we 
should participate in if for no other 
reason than to have a good time. Johnson 
has requested that anyone interested 
contact him as soon as possible, so that 
plans can be solidified. 

I wholeheartedly encourage the student 
body's participation in this event and 
beseech thee to take this challenge. What 
other time in your life will you be able to 
call home and tell your parents you can't 
come home for the weekend, you've got a 
job as a bar bawd? 

I can't wait...

major, will be a poet, bar maid, gypsy, or 
lady when she grows up.) 

Dear Editor: 

While reading the NSU 
calendar of events for this 
spring, I found that on April 
9-14 is scheduled the Nor- 
thwestern Renaissance 
Conference and Fair. 

Like the little character in

NSU policies. 

We could all make this a 
festive, unifying, and en- 
joyable event. I appeal to you 
of varying talents. 

To the artists here, let the 
student body see some of your 
masterpieces Renaissance 
style. Maybe there could even 
be an art contest. 

Speaking of contests, for 
those of you whose talent 
bends more in the physical 
directions, how about the P.E.

an archery contest? Those of 
you who are musically inclined 
have surely awaited an open-

Lady Demons Cream Nicholls State 86-67 

Baseball Team Sweeps 
Central Missouri 

Lady Demon head coach 
Pat Pierson got her 10 i si 
career win, and every Lady 
Demon but one got into the 
scoring act as Northwestern 
raised its record to 13-10 with 
an 86-67 blowout of Nicholls 

The Lady Demons raced out 
to a 20-8 lead on an Annie 
Harris to Tracy Taylor move 
and assumed their biggest lead 
of the first haif when Teressa 
Thomas fed Janette Ryan who 
scored with 32 seconds left to 
make it 35-22. 

The Lady Demons increased 
that margin to 55-34 on a 
Taylor from Ryan play and 
four minutes later assumed a 
22 point margin when Sandy 
Pugh found Annie Harris 
underneath for two more. 

Taylor led the Lady 
Demons by hitting 10 of 16 
shots from the field and 
adding three free throws for 23 
points. Taylor also grabbed 
nine rebounds which put her 
just 12 behind NSU's all-time 
leading rebounder, Marilyn 

Taylor has two more 
chances to get those 12 boards 
this season. The Lady Demons 
played Southern last night and 
close out their season Wed- 
nesday at 7:30 p.m. at home. 

Sandy Pugh hit a Nor- 
thwestern career high, 16 
points and added five 
rebounds, while Janette Ryan 
and Lonnie Banks hit 11 

Linda Grayson added eight 
rebounds and four steals and 
Thomas added nine assists to 
go with seven points. 

Lots of Heroes in Lady Demon OT Win 

Northwestern State's Gil 
Herndon drew a bases loaded 
walk in the bottom of the 
seventh as ine Demons 
defeated Central Missouri 
State 2-1 in the second game of 
a college doubleheader. 

The Demons won the first 
contest 5-2 to improve their 
record on the season to 3-8 
heading into a doubleheader 
Sunday against the same 
Central Missouri team, which 
is now 1-7. 

The Demons trailed in the 
nightcap 1-0 heading into the 
bottom of the sixth, when 
Brian Bettis led off with a 
double, his third hit of the 
game. He moved up on an 
error and a walk and scored on 
Scott Huscroft's fielder's 

In the seventh Brian Mc- 
Pherson was hit by a pitch and 
moved to second on a 
sacrifice. McPherson moved 
to third on a fly ball to right 

and then watched as Bettis was 
walked intentionally and 
David Bailey also walked. 
Herndon then walked on five 
pitches to force in the winning 

In the opener, the Demons 
scored a pair of runs in the 
first inning, one in the third 
and two more in the fifth. 
Herndon and David Reynolds 
both had two hits for the 
Demons while Huscroft drove 
in a pair of runs. Herndon, 
Reynolds, Billy Stevenson and 
Wayne Lupo all doubled in the 
first game while Bettis had two 
doubles in the second contest. 

Kevin Warner went the 
distance for the Demons to 
move his record to 1-0 in the 
first contest. In the nightcap 
Jay Lavespere started and 
gave up a single run in the 
third. Carl Soileau came on in 
the fifth to earn the win. 
moving his record to 1-2 on 
the season. 

There were more heroes in 
the Lady Demons 82-77 
overtime win over the 
Grambling Tigerettes than 
there are in a Superman 
movie. And after 45 minutes 
of run and gun action, there 
were at least four NSU 

The Tigerettes jumped out 
to a fast start and rolled into 
the lockerroom with a 43-30 
halftime lead. The Lady 
Demons just couldn't seem to 
get untracked and turnovers 
cost them severely. 

But in the second half, the 
heroics started. 

Sophomore point guard 
Teressa Thomas began 
delivering soft lobs inside to 
Lisa Carter, Tracy Taylor, and 
Linda Grayson, and the Lady 
Demons started their 

The Lady Demons chipped 
away at the lead until finally 
they went ahead by four 
points, 68-64 with less than a 
minute to play. A Grambling 
bucket made it 68-66, and then 

101 and Counting 

Lady Demon Head Coach Pat Pierson 80-77 win over Grambling in overtime, 
recorded win No. 100 as mentor of the After Saturday's win over Nicholl s 
Lady Demons, Wednesday night in State, Pierson's six-year record is 101- 
Grambling with a come-from-behind 66. 

GSU forced a turnover to tie 
the game with 14 seconds left. 

Taking the ball inbounds, 
Thomas weaved in and around 
the backcourt until she was 
fouled with but two second* 
left in the game. With half the 
coliseum under the Lady 
Demon basket waving their 
arms and yelling as loud as 
they could, Thomas coolly 
sank both ends of a one-and- 
one free throw. 

The Tigerettes took the ball 
in on a half court pass and 
Mary Curry banked in a 
prayer with no time left from 
half court to put the game into 

GSU scored the first two 
points of overtime, but after 
that it was all Northwestern. 
Inside buckets by Carter, 
Taylor, and Grayson and 
clutch free throws by Thomas 

gave the Lady Demons the 
cushion they needed to win, 
and give Lady Demon head 
coach Pat Pierson her 100th 
career victory. 

Individually, it would be 
tough to single out anyone, 
but first consideration must be 
given to Taylor. The 
Downsville native played the 
entire game, blocked six shots, 
had 1 1 rebounds, and scored 
24 points. 

By the end of overtime, 
both Carter and Thomas had 
each played all but two 
minutes of the game. 

Carter hit 14 points, all 
clutch buckets, but it was nine 
timely rebounds, most at the 
end of the game and in the 
overtime when they were 
needed most, that very well 
could have meant the dif-

Southerland Proposes Plan 
Of Success for Schools 

Dr. Thomas Paul 
Southerland, vice president of 
academic affairs at Nor- 
thwestern, shares with public 
school administrators a plan 
of success for schools in an 
article published recently in 
The Clearing House, a 
national journal for con- 
temporary educators. 

Southerland, a veteran 
educator and a well-known 
researcher in the field of 
educational management, 
suggests in the article that the 
major responsibility of an 
educational leader is to direct, 
guide and coordinate, in 
cooperation with the staff, the 
total educational program 
within a school. 

He also says that ad- 
ministrators should "consider 
carefully how the world of 
business management would 
approve their responsibility in 
being successful in their in- 
dividual fields of endeavor.' 

"If a school administrator is 
to operate a successful 
school," states Southerland, 
"he or she would have to 
analyze all factors that affect 
the profit and loss column and 
carefully structure steps to 
correct deficiencies and to 
strengthen the positive factors 
to produce more profit than 

He adds, "In the case of the 
educational leader's business, 
the loss and profit column is 
not measured in dollars and 

cents, but what is measured in 
the way of growth... the 
educational growth of the 
boys and girls entrusted to the 
educational leader's 
professional care." 

Southerland says that by 
borrowing from the business 
world their concerns, drives 
and methods to achieve 
success, negative reports that 
are being received today about 
public education-such as the 
recent study entitled "Our 
Nation at Risk"-would 

According to the NSU vice 
president of academic affairs, 
the school ieader and his or 
her faculty have to decide: 
Who do we want to be? Where 
are we? How did we get here? 
What is going on? Where are 
we going? Where do we want 
to go? How far off target are 
we? How can we get there? 
Get somewhere? and How are 
we doing? 

"Without a plan. ..a plan to 
succeed... administrators and 
schools are sure to fail," he

Registrar Says: 

No Fall Pre-registration 

There will be no pre- 
registration for the fall 
semester, according to Ray K. 
Baumgardner, registrar. 

There are several reasons 
for this, one being the new 
computer system the 
university is installing. The 
new system will allow a more 
adviser-student contact and 
will cut back on the man-hours 
required for registration. 

Several deans and depart- 
ment heads were against the 
idea, but the university doesn't 
have the manpower it needs to 
keep up with all the add/drops 
it encounters after all the 

changes are made once pre- 
registration is over. 

"Once you have pre- 
registration and get things in 
order,, you have those students 
who need to add and drop 
courses once grades are out, 

then you've got to go through 
it all again until the rosters arc 
right. This requires lots of 
man-hours and money from 

the university,

Delta Zeta 
' Ready to 
Compete 9 

By John Ramsey 

Delta Zeta sorority has 
completed its process of 
recolonization and is ready to 
challenge Northwestern's 
other sororities, according to 
Amy Viator president. 

"We've got a lot of 
potential. We can do it. We've 
got great girls, and we've 
challenged each girl to bring in 
another girl," said Viator. 

Delta Zeta's active strength 
had declined for several years, 
until just six actives remained 
last fall. Instead of par- 
ticipating in Panhellenic rush, 
the DZ's painted and cleaned 
the chapter house and re-wrote 
the by-laws, all in anticipation 
of recolonization (the 
restructuring of a chapter 
through concentrated rush.) 

Linda Regner, a Delta Zeta 
national field representative 
from West Virginia, visited 
Northwestern's chapter in 
January and helped the 
sorority rush prospective 
pledges. Also, NSU's other 
sororities held back on spring 
rush for two weeks so DZ 
could rush by itself. 

Since recolonization began, 
Delta Zeta has picked up 
fourteen girls and has once 
again started having exchanges 

"It's small, but we will 
build. We will make it 
what we want." 

with fraternities., "Kappa 
Sigma hosted an exchange 
before Mardi Gras, and Theta 
Chi held one after the 
holidays," said Viator. "The 
fiats have really been help- 

Delta Zeta, the nation's 
second target sorority behind 
Chi Omega, costs about the 
same as Northwestern's other 
sororities, said Viator. She 
added that any girl interested 
in pledging Delta Zeta should 
contact her as soon as 

Pam Perkins, a pledge from 
Paradise, said, "Delta Zeta 
w as the friendliest, most 
down-to-earth sorority. It's 
small, but will build. We will 
make it what we want." 

"We have a variety of 
Personalities," said Lisa 
Overby, a pledge from 
B unkie. She added, "We're 
unified and this sorority has a 
hnght future." 

Lisa Overby sums up the 
jeehngs of most DZ's: "The 
nigher the mountain, the more 
challenge it is to climb it - and 
we will do it " 

Opening Soon 

The Parkway Cinema is scheduled to open at the end of June, said Mignona Cote, 
manager of the Don Theatre. The cinema will have four screens and will seat ap- 
proximately 800. Applications for parttime help in the Parkway Cinema will be taken at 7- 
8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

My roommate recently 
broke up with her boyfriend. 
She's still a little withdrawn 
and won't get out and do 
tilings like she's used to doing. 
How can I perk her up? 

It's rough breaking up with 
someone you really care about 
and most people remain 
depressed for a while. To help 
your roommate, encourage 
her to go to class, do things 
she enjoys doing and to be 
around people she likes. Also, 
be available to her when she 
wants to talk and offer to do 
favors for her. Through your 
support and her becoming 

active again she'll feel much 

I hear that you use hypnosis 
quite a bit in working with 
students. For those who have 
trouble taking tests, how can 
that make them learn? 

Hypnosis cannot make you 
learn what you do hot already 
know; it simply helps you to 
remember what you have 
studied. Undue test anxiety 
causes us to block on exams by 
interfering with thinking and 
memory recall. Through the 
power of suggestion under 
hypnosis we are better able to 
remain calm and make fuller 
use of our mental processes in 
the test situation. As in sports, 
it helps insure the performance 
we are capable of. 

In one of my classes, in 
addition to grading our tests, 
the teacher grades us on class 
participation. I do well on the 
tests, but when it comes time 
to talk in front of 30 other 
persons, I'm not good. How 
can I get over this fear? 

Your fear of speaking in 
front of a group is probably 
shared by the majority of 
students. In fact, that was my 
biggest problem when I was an 
undergraduate at USL. The 
first thing is to acknowledge 
that this is a problem for you, 
which you have obviously 
done. Then, try telling a 
couple of people you know in 
each of your classes that you 
get uptight when called upon 
in class or when you have to 
give a report; trying to keep it 
a secret often creates more 
tension. More important, 
however, is to come in and 
borrow our cassette tape on 
stagefright which has helped 
other students. Another 
option is to join one of our 
hypnosis groups which would 
show you how to use self- 
hypnosis in dealing with your 
fear of speaking up in front of 
others. You can control this

Keeping students entertained has long been a 
major concern at Northwestern. Throughout the

Throughout the year, a multitude of activities are

Organizations have learned from experience 
that unique and extraordinary events have 
greater success potential than ho- hum activities. 
In light of the overwhelming crowd at Chaplin's

Speaking Up 

By Christine Avant 

One afternoon I walked into the 
classroom that I student teach in and gazed 
upon the activities of the students. I felt that 
I was in a college classroom. 

One group, some of the boys who aren't 
even getting in their classes, was talking 
about their dates this past weekend. A 
second group, some of those students that 
are barely passing their classes, was giggling 
and telling jokes as they laughed about an 
incident that occured earlier that day. 

The final group of students, the true 
achievers, was sitting and had their notes 
from yesterday's lecture out. 

The attitude of the first two groups led me 
to ask, "Why are they the way they are?" 
The answer that I came up with was that the 
students in the first two groups somewhere 
in their schooling missed developing a sense 
of determination. 

Determination, that inner feeling of pride 
in one's achievement and the ability to 
"stick with it till the end" is missing in the 
education system. Determination must be 
instilled in the personality of students for the 
education process to be successful. Without 
it, a sense of apathy has been allowed to 
develop and spread throughout our college 
and high school campuses. 

Apathy, the "I don't care" attitude, is 
unhealthy to the teaching environment and 
created an air of hostility towards the 
teacher of student teacher who cares about 
his students. These teachers, who try to 
create a pleasant atmosphere for learning by 
adding to their presentations such things as 
more effective role modeling are forced to 
deal with students who are sassy and 
arrogant and who come to class without 
materials and totally unprepared. 

Apathy Starts Early 

The actions of these students remind me 
of some of the students I have encountered 
as an NSU student. 

The sense of apathy has been compounded 
with the lack of a goal-setting program in the 
elementary and high schools. This factor has 
caused problems for the high school junior 
and senior who needs to be able to weigh the 
options available to him in order to establish 
his career choice. 

Since this has not been done, the colleges 
are getting students who are confused about 
what they want, and college failures are on 
the rise. 

The reason for this can be seen in the 
actions of some of the students of this 
university. They skip class, do not study 
properly, and drop those courses that they 
find are the least bit difficult for them. 

There is time to correct this problem, and 
that time is now. 

First, do not blame the apathy of the 
student body on the teachers. The teachers 
are there to help, but if those students who 
are having problems don't come to them, 
they can not help except by providing as 
good a role model as they can. 
. Second, students need to value a good 

Once these two things are taken into 
consideration, it is clear that a goal-setting 
program that explains what a goal is, how to 
set goals on the right level of difficulty, and 
how to follow through with one's plan, 
would be beneficial in getting those students 
who are in the first two categories to become 
better students through determination.

Dear Editor: 

Perhaps one of the most 
important and influential 
events ever undertaken at NSU 
begins next Saturday with the 
Centennial Extravaganza at 7 
p.m. in Prather Coliseum. 

Over a year ago, three local 
businessmen, Tom Anselmi, 
Ed Breedlove, and Lee Posey, 
decided to raise much needed 
capital for student scholar- 
ships through the Centennial 
Fund Drive. 

They realized that while 
NSU's enrollment had 
stabilized, almost every 
economic problem being 
experienced by NSU could be 
solved if sufficient numbers of 
new students were enrolled. 
This solution to NSU's 
problems may not be new one, 
but their solution seems to be 
the most involved and largest 
ever enacted at NSU. 

They hope to raise $5 
million in five years by in- 
dividual pledges from NSU 
faculty, staff, and alumni, 
friends of NSU and local 

businesses. So far, nearly a 
thousand tickets have been 
sold at $100 apiece for the 
Centennial Extravaganza, 
which kicks off the 
Developmental Campaign 
Fund Drive. 

The NSU Alumni 
Association and NSU 
Foundation are planning on 
investing the money back into 
NSU primarily by offering 
scholarships, by helping to 
fund special university 
recruiting, by iieiping to fund 
campus activities for visiting 
high school students and by 
special recruiting efforts in the 
new Louisiana School for 
Match, Science and the Arts. 

Through their Centennial 
Development Campaign, the 
NSU Alumni Association is 
hoping to receive much needed 
support from not only the 
faculty and staff at NSU, but 
perhaps most importantly of 
all, NSU's own students. 
NSU's greatest asset is its 
students, and the Association 
is urging all students to help 
them in their campaign drive. 

Students are asked to help 
sell Extravaganza tickets. For 
each two tickets sold, the 
Association is giving that 
student one free ticket. 
Students are also urged to 
contact their high schools to 
help recruit prospective NSU 
students and to give the 
Alumni Association names ot 
students who would be eligi b ' e 
to receive the new scholar- 

Because of the over- 
whelming response to "j e 
Fund drive, the Association 1 5 
hoping to have freshman 
scholarships of lengths fr orn 
one to five years available 35 
early as fall 1984. 

Since the university i" ece j^ 
state funding of about $2,0^ 
for each NSU student, M 
Association hopes to recru' 
an additional 600 students arwj 
therefore raise an addition*/ 
$1 million to be pumped ba<* 
into the NSU system withi" 
the next five years.

Turpin to Get 
Superdome Turf 

There will be an added 
touch of class to Nor- 
thwestern's Turpin Stadium 
with the addition of the 
football portion of the New 
Orleans Superdome's turf. 

NSU's Athletic Director 
Tynes Hildebrand was in- 
strumental in the acquisition 
of the playing turf. 

He said that he was made 
aware of Northwestern's 
possible acquisition of the turf 
in late 1983. He then contacted 
the State Property Control 
Department about Nor- 
thwestern's chances of ob- 
taining the carpet since they 
were the only state supported 
school playing on an artificial 

Hildebrand explains, "We 
wrote a letter to the Board and 
then the Superdome Com- 
mission decides that they want 
to keep it and sell it. Property 
Control started pressuring 
them about it and so they got 
the State Attorney General to 
rule on it. He ruled in their 

(Superdome's) tavor ana tney 
sent bids out." 

"LSU bid on it and they 
only bid $10,000. They wanted 
a $100,000, maybe $80,000. 
We couldn't bid on it because 
we didn't have any money to 
bid on it. 

The Superdome Com- 
mission decided that it 
wouldn't be worthwhile to sell 
the carpet at such a low price 
so Northwestern received it by 
default, saving the Univeristy 
over $500,000. 

The Superdome's carpet is 
in much better condition 
because of limited play and 
excellent upkeep in the domed 

Hildebrand adds, "The 
point is, we are saving the 
State of Louisiana a half 
million dollars." 

It will cost Northwestern 
$60,000 to have the carpet 
installed plus transportation 
costs. The Demons will play 
the 1984 football season on the 
present surface.

I-M Basketball Playoffs Round One 

Yang 1000 and BSU went 
into sudden death in the third 
overtime, before Rodney 
Thrash scored on a driving 
layup to give the Yangsters a 
59-57 win in the first round of 
the I-M basketball playoffs. 

Thrash led the Yangsters 
with 21 points and he was 
followed by Clifton Walker 
and Jay Lavaspere with 17 and 
13 points each. Mark Mendez 
with 19 points and Wayne 
Waggoner with 16, led BSU. 

In other first round games, 
Omega Psi Phi downed Kappa 
Sigma 57-36 as Craig Ryan hit 
24. Phi Beta Sigma, behind 
Dwayne Lathan's 19 points 
and Vada Carr's 13 eased by 

Tau Kappa Epsilon, 42-39. 
Frank SiSsion hit 15 and Harry 
Martin chipped in 14 for TKE. 

Van Craig and Sam Car- 
penter hit 16 and 15 points 
apiece to lead the Budmen past 
the Blind Boys 47-45. Ray 
Harbison gunned in 16 for BB. 

The Homeboys had the 
Sidekicks down by two points, 
54-52 when the game was 
declared a forfeit on the three 
technical rule. Ed Thompson 
led the Homeboys with 15 
points. And the Champs eased 
by the Heartbreakers 46-44 
behind the 15 points of Dan 

In girls first round play, Pat 
Pierson and Diane Powell 

each scored 14 points to lead 
the Strait Shooters past Sigma 
Kappa 38-35. In the other 
game, Christian Students 
ended Un Kappa 5th's season 
with a 35-34 win. Cindy Wigley 
had 15 points for CS while 
Renee Richard has 12 for 

In the second round of the I- 
M playoffs, the Chamnps 
eased by Budmen 47-43 as Jim 
Blackwell hit 17 markers. 
Mark Chamberlain led the 
Budmen with 16 points. Yang 
1000 tripped the Homeboys 
71-56 behind Jay Lavasperes 
16 points and Omega Psi Phi 
crushed Phi Beta Sigma 63-43 
as Jerry Lynch hit 17, 

Strait Shooters, Yang Claim I-M Basketball 

Julie Robinson scored 15 
points and Mary Simmons 
added 12 more to lead the 
Strait Shooters past Christian 
Students 52-24 and give them 
the all-campus championship 
in the I-M basketball playoffs. 

The Strait Shooters jumped 
out to a 27-19 halftime lead 
and limited CS to just five 
second half points in winning 
the title for first year coaches 
Lonnie Banks and Val 

Jarvis Shaw had 14 points 
for Yang 1000 and the 
Yangsters nipped the Champs 
38-36 to win their second 
straight independent 
basketball title. 

It was a close game all the 
way with neither team ever 
getting more than a four point 
lead. At halftime the Champs 
were up 20-19, but a tough 
inside game and clutch free 
throw shooting down the 
stretch gave Yang their win. 

Yang 1000 and Omega Psi 
Phi played it close and 
physical for the entire game, 
but it was Rob Johnston's 
four straight free throws with 
less than a minute to go that 
gave Yang 1000 their second 
straight all-campus cham- 
pionship in I-M basketball. 

Johnston's eight points led a 
very balanced Yang scoring 
attack which saw all seven 
players get into the scoring

Fabre No-Hits Demons, Nicholls Sweeps 

Nicholls got no-hit pitching 
from Stan Fabre in the first 
contest on the way to a 
doubleheader sweep over 
Northwestern here Wednesday 
night. The Colonels won the 
opener by a 7-1 marginand the 
nightcap by a 9-1 score. 

In the first contest Fabre 
improved his season record to 
3-0 by allowing just two 
baserunners, ore on a walk 
and another who was hit by a 
pitch. Fabre struck out 11, 

including the last seven batters 
in a row. Nicholls State got 
two hits from both Mati 
Bergeron an Bobby Dickerson 
while Bergeron and Gordo 
Meyer both had two RBIs, 
Meyer hitting a solo homer in 
the fourth. 

In the second contest 
Northwestern managed five 
hits, but scored only one run 
as John Faciane collected 10 
strikeouts. The Demon hits 

included a double and a single 
by Scott Huscroft and singles 
by Jay Lavespere, Randy Roe 
and Brian McPherson, who 
had an RBI in the fifth. 

Nicholls State scored four 
runs in the first inning in 
handing John Kowalski his 
fourth straight loss of the 
season. For the contest 
Nicholls state collected nine 
hits, two by Dickerson. 
Bergeron and Mike Tullier 
both had two runs batted in. 

Demons Edge Hardin-Simmons 

Gil Herndon doubled to 
lead off the bottom of the 
ninth and later scored on a 
fielders choice as Nor- 
thwestern edged Hardin- 
Simmons 2-1 here Sunday 
afternoon in a single contest. 

The Demons are now 8-19 
on the season and 3-6 in the 
league while the Cowboys are 
1-2 in the TAAC and 6-15 

After Herndon doubled to 
lead off the ninth, he was 
sacrificed to third by Wayne 
Lupo. Hardin-Simmons then 
walked Brian McPherson and 
David Bailey intentionally to 
load the bases. On the first 
pitch Scott Huscroft hit a slow 

ground to shortstop and the 
Cowboys failed to turn the 
double play as Herndon 
scored the winning run. 

Northwestern had scored its 
first run in the second inning 
when Herndon singled with 
two outs. Herndon then stole 
second and scored on Lupo's 
single. The Demons collected 
just six hits in the contest and 
left 1 1 men on base. 

Hardin-Simmons scored its 
only run in the top of the 
ninth, and had two other 
runners thrown out a the plate 
during the inning. After one 
man was out, the Cowboys 
loaded the bases with two 
singles and a walk. 

Few Bright Spots 
In 6-22 Season 

Few things went right for 
the 6-22 Demon Basketball 
team but there were some very 
bright spots. 

Although NSU set the 
record for most losses in a 
season at 22 there were some 
v ery encouraging signs as the 
season came to an abrupt halt 
the first round of the Trans 
American Conference. 
The play of sophomore 

center Donald Mays and 
freshman forward Sylvester 
Smith sent out a warning to 
Demon opponents to beware 
in the 84-85 campaign eight 
months away. 

Demon Head coach Wayne 
Yates commented on the play 
of the inside^ combo, "Donald 
and Sylvester were certainly 
playing their best basketball at

The next batter hit a 
bouncer back to the mound 
but Trey McCollom made a 
wild throw to the plate. One 
runner scored while a second 
runner was out at the plate. 
The final out of the inning 
came when a runner from 
third tried to score on a pitch 
that squirted away from Lupo, 
but he too was out at the plate. 

Kevin Warner pitched 8'/3 
innings for the Demons and 
allowed just seven hits. 
McCollum picked up the win 
to move his record to 1-0 on 
the season. 

Mike Antonini races back and fires another one

Faculty Members Upset Over Campaign '•Pressure ' 

By Darlene Winslow 

Many faculty members are 
upset about having to turn in 
signed pledge sheets for the 
Centennial Development 
Campaign to their department 
chairman whether they 
pledged a contribution or not, 
the Current Sauce has learned. 

The pledge sheet that most 
faculty members received 
suggested pledges ranging 
from $500 to $25,000 spread 
over five years. They could 
also check a line, "I do not 
wish to participate at this 

Faculty members from these 
- departments said they were 
J required to turn in pledge 
sheets: Mathematics, Theatre 
and Media Arts, Language 
Arts, and Business. 

Many faculty members 
seemed to have feelings about 
the matter but refused to 
eemment for publication. 

Neill Cameron, associate 
professor of English, said, 
"Signing the pledge in no way 
intimidates me. I did not 

pledge a monetary gift because 
the ultimate destination of it 
has not been made clear to me. 

"Furthermore, I have given 
of myself, my time and my 
talent (such as it is) to this 
school for fifteen years and 
small thanks have been for- 
thcoming thus far. Why 
should a contribution of 
money be any more well- 

Many faculty members felt 
it was wrong to be pressured 
into signing pledge sheets. 

"Requiring faculty 
members to turn in signed 
pledges— even when they 
choose not to give— is 
pressuring them, and I think 
it's tacky, tasteless, and ill- 
mannered, not to mention an 
invasion of privacy," said 
Sara Burroughs, professor of 

"The sari' thing is that the 
anger about pressure has 
distracted people from a good 

The program was started by 
three local businessmen, Tom 

Anselmi, Ed Breedlove, and 
Lee Posey, to raise money for 
student scholarships. All three 
were unavailable at press time. 

Marie Burkhead, professor 
of business, said, "The 
campaign started externally 
and should have been kept 

Some departments whose 
chairmen did not require 
faculty to return the pledge 
sheets are the Departments of 
Art; Biology and 
Microbiology; Chemistry, 
Physics, and Geology; 
Psychology and Counseling; 
Industrial Education, 
Technology and Aviation 
Science; and the Library 

One faculty member who 
asked not to be identified said, 
"It is interesting that at a state 
institution at which no raises 
have been given in the last year 
and rather inconsistent raises 
in the last few years, we are 
being asked to make rather

Elections Slated for Tomorrow 

By Craig Scott 

Students who go to the polls 
Wednesday to cast their votes 
ln the SGA and SUGB elec- 
tions will not have many 
decisions to make. 

In an election in which one 
w ould normally cast 23 votes- 
eleven for SGA senators, five 

for SGA otticers, and seven 
for SUGB representatives- 
only two will be cast. 

Candidates for SGA 
president are Tod Klotzbach, 
Scott Repp, and Greg 
Shoalmire. Running for SGA 
treasurer are Lynn Nicolle and 
Jon Robbins. 

'84 Potpourri Delayed 
Until Fall Registration 

By John Ramsey 

The 1984 edition of Pot- 
P°urn will not be issued until 
^istration next fall, ac- 
cording to Carla Erickson, 
iy w editor. 

Two major problems have 
^"sed the delay from the 
" r 'ginal issuing date of May 1. 
' ne Potpourri staff 
Photographer "just didn't do 

aHH J ^ b '" said Erickson. She 
faaed that this yearbook will 
e the same size as the 1983 
edition. ' 

A 'so contributing to the 

delay is the recent death of 
Mr. Ezra Adams, who had 
served as Potpourri's advisor. 

Graduating students who 
paid for the yearbook but will 
not be here in the fall may 
request that a copy be mailed 
to them. Erickson said that 
students may call the staff 
office or slip a note under the 
door to request the mailing. 

As of press time, staff 
members were still trying to 
finish the remaining 15 pages 
of the yearbook. The original 
final deadline was in the 
second week of January. 

All other offices are either 
unopposed or have no can- 

Nine students qualified to 
run for SGA senator-at-large, 
according to Stacy 
Baumgardner, commissioner 
of election. Since there are 
eleven openings, each of these 
will automatically take office. 
The newly elected president 
will appoint two students to 
fill the vacancies. 

He will also have to appoint 
a secretary for the SGA since 
there are no candidates in that 
race. Stacy Bamgardner will 
again be commissioner of 
elections, and Shawn Wyble 
will assume the office of vice- 
president. Neither candidate 
will meet opposition. 

Baumgardner stated that the 
lack of candidates is very 
discouraging. It doesn't seem 
like anyone is interested. 
People just don't realize that 
they are really missing out on

Media Board Selects Editors 

Editors for Northwestern's 
newspaper and yearbook have 
been chosen by the Student 
Media Board. 

John Ramsey, a journalism 
major from Baton Rouge, was 
selected as Current Sauce's 
editor, while Carla Erickson, a 
business administration 
major from Anacoco, will fill 
that capacity on the Potpourri 

Staffs for both publications 
were also announced. The 
Current Sauce editorial staff 
will consist of Lisa Williams, 
news editor; Lucy LeBlanc, 
advertising manager; and 
Stacy Scroggins , business 
manager. No sports editor has 
been chosen, although Ramsey 
"is looking into several 

Potpourri's 1984-85 staff is 
Jan Chatelain, organizations; 
Skippy Waters, greeks; 
Kristine Leone, managing 
editor; Janice Williams, 
centennial section editor; and 
Dwight Bordelon, staff 
photographer. Like Current 
Sauce, no sports editor has 
been selected. 

Ramsey said he "is really 
excited about the newspaper. 
We have a lot of things 
planned that will bring 
Current Sauce up to par with 
or better than Louisiana's 
other public school 

To do this, the paper will 
change format, typestyle, and 
maybe even the name. 

"We've encountered a 
really negative reaction to 
Current Sauce," he said. "A 
name change would probably 
help the paper's image." 

"If the name is changed or 
not, it will be a totally dif- 
ferent publication when 
students return next fall. I 
think everyone wiH really like 
the changes, which the staff 
will work on this summer." 

Erickson is also excited 
about next year's Potpourri. 
"This will be the centennial 
edition, and we've got to really 
try to make it memorable. Mr. 

Presson (Potpourri advisor) 
told us that this book will be 
looked at for the next 50 

Erickson adds that one staff 
photographer position is open, 
and it does include a 
scholarship. Also, anyone 
interested in interning should 
contact her as soon as 
possible. "Interns are almost 
assured of an editorship the 
following year, " she said. 

Students interested in 
working with either staff 
should contact the respective 
offices — Current Sauce at 
357-5456 (Rm. 225 Kyser), and 
Potpourri at 357-5026 (Rm. 
227 Kyser).

Candidate for SGA President 

I would like to announce my 
candidacy for the office of 
president. My qualifications 
stem from many different 
roles in student activities. I 
have served on SGA as 
senator, President pro-

Director of Legal Services, 

by Greg Shoalmire 
Candidate for SGA President 

Why does Greg Shoalmire 
feel that he could be a good 
SGA President? My main goal 
is to close the communication 
gap between the students and 
the SGA. There are many 
accomplishments of the SGA 
that the student body does not 
realize. For instance, students 
are opposed to the con- 
struction of gates at the en- 
trances to the campus, 
therefore the SGA has spoken 
in behalf of the students. 

As an active member of the 
SGA for the past two years, I 
feel that I am very qualified 

gathering place. The funds are 
not available to hire a staff of 
workers, so the Station will 
not remain open on a regular 
basis. Instead, the Station will 
be used for activities and 
events that may be too small to 
be held in the ballroom.

its opening by special per-

Being a current treasurer of

experience and tenacity to

With my experience on the

major, I am qualified to serve 
as treasurer. 

by Jon Robbins 

Candidate for SGA Treasurer 

I would like to announce my 
candidacy for the office of 
Treasurer of the Student 
Government Association. I 
feel my greatest qualification 
for this position is that for the 
past year I have been the 
treasurer for the Student 
Union Governing Board. 
Through this office I've 
learned the responsibilities 
that a treasurer must face. 

If elected to this position I 
will attempt to fulfill the 
duties of the office to the best 
of my ability.

Admissions Standards to Go into Effect This Summer 

by Doris Maricle 

Starting this summer 
semester, the university is 
going to add new admission 
standards for all new students 
and continuing students who 
have not been admitted to a 
senior college, according to 
Mack Palmour, counselor in 
the Office of Special Ser- 
vices/College Success. 

"The purpose of the new 
standards is not to make it 
more difficult for students to 
progress, but simply to give 
them an opportunity to show 
they have some competence 
and guarantee a good 
educational background," 
said Palmour. 




What is being done about 
Caldwell Hall now that only 
the debris remains? According 
to Loran Lindsey, director of 
physical plant, the problem is 
with insurance. 

"We are in the process of 
settling the claim," said 
Lindsey. "They (the insurance 
company) are getting one 
quote, and we don't feel like 
the figure they quoted is 
adequate. We had a meeting 
with them at the first of the 
month and we've gotten much 
closer. We've gathered some 
additional information that 
the insurance company is 

The university hopes to have 
the claim settled soon, so 
planning for a new building 
can get underway. Once the 
claim is settled, an architect 
will be assigned by the Ar- 
chitect Selection Board to 
begin the project. 

The planning process will 
take about six to eight months 
and construction about 
eighteen to twenty-four 

"You really need a six to 
eight-month planning period if 
you're going to have some 
intense planning," said 
Lindsey. "You don't want to 
cut your planning period 
because you've got to do your 
thing during that planning 
session in order for your 
facility to be functional." 

"At tnis time we re looking 
at the possibility of housing 
the administration offices in 
Caldwell Hall. We'd like to 
consolidate a lot of the offices 
hack into one area to eliminate 
students from running all over 

"We want to make it as 
clear and understandable to 
students as possible and to 
approach it in a positive way."

Give Until It Hurts? 

According to the table in the February 8, 1984 
issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education, 
average salaries for Northwestern faculty in 
1982-83 were below the statewide averages for 
professor, associate professor, and assistant 
professor ranks, but above average for in- 
structors' salaries. 

At Northwestern, male professors received an 
average of $28,200 in the 1982-83 academic year, 
while the average for female professors was 
$28,700, both below Louisiana averages of 
$32,998 and $29,207, respectively. 

Average salaries for Northwestern instructors, 
$19,200 for males and $17,700 for females, were 
above state averages of $17,524 and $17,339. 

Northwestern 's faculty salary averages, 
collected by the National Center for Education 
Statistics, were among averages for more than 
1 ,900 colleges and universities nationwide. 

These averages included both public and 
private schools, and therefore tend to overstate 
the differences in salary averages, making some 
comparisons less than valid. 

In comparing apples with apples, Nor- 
thwestern 's averages for professors were above 
those of Grambling State University, whose 
male professors received an average of $26,300, 
and females, $27,100. 

At Nicholls State University, the average for 
male professors was $31,000 and $32, 500 for 

What the report did not bring out was the 
number of schools: 

(a) Who asked their faculty members to 
purchase $100 tickets to a fundraising party. 

(b) Who asked their faculty members to pledge 
donations of at least $500. 

Don't get us wrong. We do thank our local 
businessmen for their efforts in raising funds for 
student scholarships. Their support of Nor- 
thwestern by increasing the availability of an 
education and rewarding outstanding scholars is 
highly commendable and greatly appreciated. 

However, we feel that the requirement by 
some departments that their members sign 
centennial development campaign forms places 
an unfair burden on a faculty that is already paid 
less than their colleagues at other state univer-

Speaking Up 

Don't Believe Everything 
You Read 

(USPS No. 140-660) 

Not long ago, I spent some time looking 
through some magazines: Better Homes and 
Gardens, Life, McCall's, and People. 

I wasn't particularly interested in the 
articles, but the advertisements did draw my 
attention. As I read, I began to realize the 
amount of blather we are subjected to in 
reading advertisements. 

And I became aware of the possibility of a 
very dangerous situation: that of the 
American public playing puppet to the 
overpaid, super sly advertisers. If we fall for 
everything they hand us, these guys will have 
us just where they want us: in their wallets! 

Some advertisements particularly exhibit 
the craftiness of the American advertiser. I 
categorized them for easy reference: 1) 
"Let's be real," 2) "Thanks a lot and 
3) "Promises, Promises ..." 

1) The "Let's be real" category consists of 
those advertisements that slap us in the face 
with absurdity. Bright Cigarettes claim, 
"You never had it so fresh!" Forget your 
vacation to the Rockies. Forget your 
grandmother's boiled corn-on-the-cob. Why 
go out on a spring day, when you can stay 
inside and smoke a Bright? ...sure. 

An ad for Frigidaire Refrigerators starts 
with a catchy line: "What's more logical 
than saving money?" Buying a Frigidaire, I 
suppose ... 

"Delicious! Delightful! Dare to dream in 
Maidenform Delectables!" Folks, we're 
talking brassieres. 

"It's More You," declare More 
Cigarettes, "It's long. It's slim. It's 
elegant." That's me?! I never knew! 

Cover Girl brags, "Never before have lips 
shimmered so softly." Is it possible to speak 
while your lips are shimmering? Let's be 

2) . The "Thanks a lot ..." category hits us 
below the belt. It is possible that this type of 
advertisement is the cause for our lack of 
confidence from time to time. These ads 
suggest to us that we are less than perfect 
without their products. They imply we are 
ignorant of the finer aspects of life until we 
see things their way. 

Time/Life Magazine advertises tapes: 
"The Beatles! You've never really heard 
them until you've heard them on Original 
Master Recordings." ... and I thought I was 
a Beatles fan. Now I know that I've never 
heard them, really. 

Hallmark headlines: "How to be a 
Friend." Whew! I'm glad someone out there 
wants to help! My friends haven't com- 
plained, but it helps to know Hallmark is 

Bon Ami is able to make "your home a 
little better place to live in." I've always 
been fairly comfortable at home, but if 
things should collapse, I'll pull out my Bon 

"Improve Your Image at Casual Corner." 
Did you realize your image was slipping? 
Thanks to Casual Corner, you can buy 
something before absolute failure sets in. 

Pepperidge Farms tells us, "Taste the way 

vegetables were meant to be." Imagine! 
Vegetables have been around all this time, 
and we've never known what to do with 
them! Thanks to Pepperidge Farms, we now 
understand what green beans are supposed 
to be. 

"The only thing they can't contain is your 
imagination." What are we talking about? 
Ziploc Bags, of course. They've saved my 
life. I have two ninety-pound elephant rump 
roasts just waiting for a baggie capable of 
the job. Thanks, Ziploc. 

If these products performed as advertised, 
life would be no sweat. But ... thanks for 

3) My final category, "Promises, 
Promises is the most wonderful 

category of all. It is the type that makes us 
believe we can actually escape the mid-winter 
blues by taking our American Express Card 
to Hawaii. 

Supposedly, if you pay for it a couple of 
months later, it's totally painless. This the 
category that sells joy in dishwashing liquid, 
and euphoria in pantyhose. 

Have you been feeling down about life 
lately? Well, Vantage offers "The Taste of 
Success." Has campus life been bland? 
Consider, "The Coconut of Almond Joy 
and Mounds. Taste it and find paradise. 
"Believe me, it's cheaper than American 
Express. " 

Xerox offers a case study to prove their

office manager reports, "She's become the 
fastest worker in the office." Her mailbox

Advertisements can be fun, as long as the 
joke is not on us. The ideas of paradise in 
candy bars and shimmering lips are ap-

I was reminded of this over Christmas,

Demons, Gents Split 

Centenary College split a 
double-header with Nor- 
thwestern here Saturday 
afternoon, with the Demons 
of Northwestern coming from 
behind to win the first game 6- 
5, while the Gents took the 
second game 8-4. 

The Gents raised their 
overall record to 14-7 and 5-4 
in the Trans America Athletic 
Conference (TAAC), while the 
Demons fell to 11-23 and 5-7 
in the TAAC. The Demons 
won a single game Friday 
afternoon to take two of three

In the first game, the 
Demons scored two runs in the 
bottom half of the sixth inning 
when left fielder Bubba 
Patterson reached base on an 
error by Gent third baseman 
Tony Tafoya, went to second 
when Demon shortstop David 
Reynolds walked. Cen- 
terfielder Gil Herndon reached 
first on a fielders choice, 
forcing Patterson out at third. 

Designated hitter Billy 
Stevenson walked to load the 
bases and the Demons scored 
their two runs when right- 
fielder Brian Bettis singled 
home Reynolds and Herndon. 
The Demons scored two runs 
in the bottom half of the 
fourth and fifth innings for 
their other four runs after the 
Gents had scored four runs in

Carpenter, Craig Lead Impressive Showin 

Northwestern's golf team 
had its best showing in the past 
couple of years this past 
weekend as the Demons placed 
eighth out of 14 teams at the 
Arkansas-Little Rock In- 
vitational Golf Tournament 
and Hindman Park. 

The Demons shot 315 on the 
opening day of the tour- 
nament and came back with a 
round of 320 during the final 
day of action. Paris Junior 
College won the tournament 

while Arkansas-Little Rock 
placed second and Southwest 
Missouri State was third. 

Northwestern was led in the 
tournament by Sam Car- 
penter, who shot a 76-77-153. 
He was followed by Van Craig 
at 74-83-157, Joe Bienvenu at 

82- 80-162, Eddie McDugle at 

83- 80-163 and Kendall Acosta 
at 83-85-168. The top four 
scores of each day are counted 
to the team totals. 

Craig had the lowest single 

round of the season for thj 
Demons with his opening 74 
while Carpenter was right 
behind on Thursday with a 76. 
On Friday Carpenter con- 
tinued to play well with a 77 
while Bienvenu and McDugle

to take a 4-0 lead. 

In the nightcap, the Gents 
scored eight runs for winning 
pitcher Stacey Burt who held 
the Demons hitless through 
five innings pitched. He gave 
up four runs, but only two of 
those runs were earned. In the 
sixth inning Demon shortstop 
Reynolds broke up Burt's no 

He gave way to Tracey 
Butler who earned the save 
after allowing the tying run to 
come to the plate in the 
bottom half of the sixth in- 
ning. The Gents did their 
damage early, scoring four 
runs in the second, one in the 
third, and three in the fourth. 

Rightfielder Billy Harwell, 
designated hitter Andy Olson, 
catcher Wayne Rathbun, and 
centerfielder Randy Williams 
each had two hits for the 
Gents. Olson was the star as 
the dh banged out six of seven 
hits in the series, including one 
home run and seven rbi's. 

The Demons rallied for one 
unearned run off Burt in the 
fourth, but scored three runs 
in the bottom half of the sixth, 
leaving three runner on base 
with only one out. Butler had 
come on in relief for the Gents 
giving up three consecutive 
singles before retiring the 
Demons and ending the rally.

Goodwin Pleased with Offensive Effort 

Northwestern worked its 
way through a second intra- 
squad scrimmage here 
yesterday and, for the second 
straight week, Demon football 
coach Sam Goodwin was 
pleased with the effort of his 

"I felt better that our of- 
fensive line blocked real well. 
Our execution was a lot better 
than last week. We only had 
one fumble in 48 plays, and no 
interceptions. I know that 
doesn't constitute a real ball 
game, but the improvement 
over last year is evident." 

The Demon running game, 
a weak spot last year, was 
again impressive as NSU ball- 
carriers hauled the pigskin for 

NSU Rodeo 

university's intercollegiate 
rodeo program, was the sixth 
rodeo of the 1983-84 season 
for the Southern Region of the 

The attendance at the one 
go-round rodeo-estimated at 
800 for the Friday night 
performance and standing- 
room only at more than 1,200 
for Saturday night-was the 
most of any Southern Region 
rodeo this year. 

Phil Smith of McNeese 
State University in Lake 
Charles, La., was a triple 
winner as he led the MCNSU 
men's team to its second 
consecutive championship of 
the year. 

Smith scored 81 points-the 
highest this season in the 
Southern Region-on Ivy's 
number 100 to win the 
bareback riding competition 
and later was awarded 75 
points for his first-place 
performance in bull riding 
aboard number 23 Charger. 
These two wins gave him his 
second straight men's all- 
around title. He was the all- 
around winner at Southwest 
Texas State University's rodeo 
in San Marcos in February, 
where MCNSU won its first 
men's team title of 1983-84. 

The women's all-around 
champion was Rhonda 
Smothers of Southwest Texas 
Junor College in Uvalde. She 
earned the coveted buckle by 
winning the barrel racing event 
in 16.58 seconds and placing 
fifth in breakaway roping. 
Miss Smothers was the No. 2 
barrel racer in the Southern 
Region before picking up her 
second win of the year at the 
Demon Days Rodeo. 

The women's team 
championship was won by 
Sam Houston State University 
of Huntsville, Tex., which 
earned its fourth straight team 
trophy of the 1983-84 season. 

159 yards on 30 carries. Rob 
Fabrizio, a transfer student 
eligible in the fall, rushed for 
a team leading 42 yards from 
his quarterback position. 
Claude Brown, another 
Demon quarterback, traveled 
28 yards in only five carries, 
and also tallied a one yard 
touchdown run. 

Northwestern opened up its 
passing game over last weeks 
air effort, tossing the ball 14 
times with each of three 
quarterbacks equally sharing 
nine receptions amongst them. 
Fabrizio had the lone passing 
touchdown, connection with 
Demetrius Williams on an 18 
yard scoring strike. Senior 

Roy Fontenot lead all Demon 
receivers with two catches, 
good for 31 yards. 

Goodwin felt that his 
defense lacked "intensity, but 
I think that's due to a number 
of things. We've had a lot of 
down linemen hurt, and had to 
shuffle people out of position. 
Plus, we've had 11 straight 
days of practice, and that may 
have had some effect as well. " 

When asked how he felt his 
team was coming along, 
Goodwin summarized "Off- 
fensively, I couldn't be more 
pleased. We're way ahead of 
last year. Our defense is 
coming around, and I feel that 
it will, in time, become a great

the SGA Election Board, but 
was reinstated Monday night 
when the SGA Senate voted 
13-7 to accept the election 
results as they were. 

He received 270 votes in the 
first election, and Repp 
received 193. Greg Shoalmire 
finished third with 137 votes. 

Voting to accept the election 
results as stated (Klotzbach 
and Repp in a runoff) were 
senators Brunetta Anthony, 
Eileen Haynes, Chris Maggio, 
Beth McMillian, Greg 
Shoalmire, Amy Viator, Tod 
Klotzbach, Jim Martin, Jeff 
Eversull, Lynn Nicolle, Donna 
Jo Kelly, J.J. Williams, and 

John Sacker. 

Voting against were Shawn 
Wyble, Stacy Scroggins, 
Sylvester Roque, Dudley Hall, 
Leah Sherman, Cindy Ernst 
and Kevin Bartholomew. 

The election results had 
been contested by Todd 
Eppler (see related story on 
this page) on the ground that 
Klotzbach had not served a 
full semester as an SGA 
elected official. Many 
comments were made for both 
sides at the Monday night 

Williams stated that the 
constitution says that a 
candidate will be certified by 
the election board within one 
week of the date of filing. He 
contended that, since a 
candidate is certified one week 
after filings close and Klotz- 
bach was allowed to run, then 
he must be considered eligible 
to run. 

After Williams' remarks, a 
petition bearing the signatures 
of more than 600 students was 
Presented to the SGA Senate 
by Tommy Moore. The 
signers believed Tod Klotz- 
bach should be allowed to run 
for the presidency. 

Wyble, who is also vice 
President-elect, said "It's all in 
black and white. The con- 
stitution must be followed." 
Lynn Nicolle said that the 
Petition was "wonderful, but 
where were all of those 600 
People on election day?" 

Klotzbach came to his own 
defense by saying "there is no 
definition of a full semester in 
the constitution. Just because 
the Board of Trustees says 15 
weeks is a semester doesn't 
make it valid. Our con- 
stitution does not say that." 

Frank Morris, a student 
present at the meeting, said 
that he was disappointed in the 

"I think it's terrible that you 
people tell someone they can 
run and then at the last 
minute tell them they can't 

Viator called for an end to 
discussion, and after some 
parliamentary discussion the 
vote was taken. 

Because of Monday night's 
Senate action, Tuesday's 
runoff between Repp' and 
Klotzbach was to proceed as 
scheduled. The acceptance of 
the election results also gave 
Jon Robbins a win for SGA 
treasurer and kept intact the 
loss for the gates at the en- 
trances to the campus.

Board Members Discuss Protest, Runoff 

A special meeting of the 
SGA Election Board was held 
Thursday night to discuss a 
protest that challenged 
Wednesday's results. 

The protest was filed to 
contest the candidacy of Tod 
Klotzbach, who finished in 
first place in the presidential 
election. Scott Repp and Greg 
Shoalmire finished second and 
third, respectively. The 
election board's ruling was, in 
turn, overturned by the 
Senate. (See related story on 
this page) 

The protest was filed by 
Todd Eppler, former SGA 
senator. He challenged the 
results on the basis that 
Klotzbach has not served in 
SGA the full amount of time 
as stated in the SGA con- 

The constitution states that 
a candidate for president serve 
oil the SGA in an elective 
office for a full semester. 

Klotzbach was appointed by 
Deana Grau, SGA president, 
earlier this semester.

Idea For Novel Contest Came From England 

Would you like $100? 

This question was presented 
to NSU students three weeks 
ago, when Ann Black, 
associate professor of English, 
announced the mini-novel 

It seemed easy-just write a 
story in exactly 50 words, no 
more, no less. Up to 15 words 
allotted for the title, whose 
purpose is to enhance the 
mini-novel, not to be just a 

The idea for this contest at 
NSU originated in the London 
Telegraph. Dr. and Mrs. 
Black, who travel as often as 
possible, were in London for 
the "Writer's School" at 
Swanwick last summer. Mrs. 
Black noticed at article on the 
contest in the paper while 
walking through Regents 
Park, and thought, "This is 
for my class!" 

She discussed her plans 
about the contest with her 

creative writing students in 
class. Decisions were made, 
prizes agreed upon, deadlines 
set, and publicity arranged. 

The contest followed the 
original plan accordingly, but 
was only a small scale of the 
London contest. The 
Telegraph received 33,000 
entries, while approximately 
50 were entered here. 

Promises of $100 for first 
prize, donated by Sam and 
Kate Clayton, a mini-cassette

Lo0iS Orie?r r S n r ^ ic 


recorder for second prize, 
donated by Mayfield Printing 
and Office Co., and a year's 
supply of writing materials 
donated by the Department of 
Language Arts gave initiative 
to many students. Said 
contestant Cathey Smith, "It 
was a good test of my 
creativity, and I could 
definitely use the money! " 

Many entries in the London 
contest were generated by 
creative writing and English 
courses. Runner-up Mrs. J. 
Coyte wroter her mini-novel as 
a part of a writing course. The 
insistence of her classmates 
persuaded Mrs. Coyte to 
submit her entry. 

Even Princess Margaret 
entered the contest: 
Happening From The Past: 
"Sitting alone in the sun- 

of presence-and 

warmed heather. 

An approaching noise of 
hooves and a jingle on the 
unseen road.

they passed. 

Checked, and there had 
been no horses anywhere near 
that day. 

Concluded it was the ghosts

The winner of the London 
contest's adult section is Carol 
Burns, a professional writer, 
and a creative writting teacher. 
She won 500 pounds and a 
Sinclair ZX81 home computer 
with accessories. 

The winner of our contest 
(revealed in another article) 
won't win a computer. But 
then again, $100 is nothing to 
laugh at.

President Proclaims 
Renaissance Week 

President Joseph Orze has 
proclaimed the week of April 
9-14 Renaissance Festival 
Week at Northwestern. 

Highlighting the week's 
activities will be Nor- 
thwestern's first Medieval- 
Renaissance Fair, April 11-14. 
Patterned after historical fairs 
and after such modern 
imitations as the one in Texas, 
Northwestern's will feature 
foods and drinks, booths and 
games, and contests. 

There will be a falconer, an 
alchemist, some players and 
poets, a jester or two, some 
knights and ladies, musicians 
and dancers, soldiers and 
horsemen, bawds and fish- 
mongers and rowdy low-lifes. 

Intramural points can be 
won by participation, and a 
system for awarding in- 
dividual knighthoods and 
ladyships is being devised. 
Stalls for money-raising 
projects can, if approved, be 
set up. 

Students and student groups 
wishing to participate should 
contact Joseph A. Johnson in 

the Department of Language 

Arts. There are still activities 
and events that will remain 
closed unless students get 

On Wednesday through 
Friday, the fair will be open 
from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.; on 
Saturday, it will run from 10 
a.m. until 3 p.m. 

According to Johnson, 
"Appropriate costumes can be 
elaborate or they can be 
simple. Long, flowing gowns 
or robes would fit in; or one 
might wear tights or colored 
pantyhose with a full blouse or 
shirt. Slippers or soft boots 
would do well. Leather vests, 
with or without sleeves, were 
popular--as were leg wrap- 
pings. The 'Robin Hood' or 
'Excalibur' movies might give 
some ideas." 

On Friday and Saturday, 
members of The Society for 
Creative Anachronisms will 
join the fair. Dedicated to the 
study and the preservation of 
medieval activities, they will 

act out tournaments and 

In addition, they will bring 
an armor-maker, belly 
dancers, and perhaps a teller 
of tales, a "scop." They will 
also talk with and give in- 
struction to interested 

Other activities include 
nightly performances of 
Shakespeare's "Twelfth 
Night," two exhibits "The Art 
of Chivalry" and 
"Shakespeare, the Globe, and

Center, possibly a television 
showing of "Becket" with 
Richard Burton and Peter

a $10,000 graduate fellowship 
by the Louisiana Board of 
Regents for Higher Education. 

Boutte will begin this fall 
pursuing the Ph.D. in clinical 
psychology with a speciality in 
behavioral medicine. 

He is the second NSU 
graduate student in the 
master's degree clinical 
psychology program in three 
years to be selected as a 
recipient of a Board of 
Regents graduate fellowship. 
Valerie Rawls of Miami, Fla... 
received the award in the 
spring of 1982 and is enrolled 
in the doctoral program at 
Auburn University in 

At Northwestern, he is a 
graduate teaching assistant to 
Dr. Donald Gates, professor 
and chairman of the 
Department of Psychology 
and Counseling. He is also a 
research assistant at NSU. 

The award is to be used in 
the pursuit of the doctoral 
degree next year. It may be 
granted a maximum of three 

times for three years for 
$30,000 in total support. 

Boutte, a graduate of 
Washington High School in 
Lake Charles, received the 
bachelor of science degree in 
psychology and pre-medical 

science from Tulane 
University. Before entering the 
graduate program at NSU, he

SGA Was Right. . . s P eakin e u p 

Many students are going to feel that the SGA made a 
mistake Monday night by allowing the election results to 
stand. I, however, believe it was a good choice. One of the 
points that was brought out was that the students wanted 
Klotzbach for president. He had received 43 per cent of the 
votes in last week's election. More than 600 students signed a 
petition protesting the decision of the Election Board to 
disqualify him. Monday night's SGA meeting drew more 
students than any other meeting this year. 

All these facts show Klotzbach had the students behind 

1 agree with the SGA's decision to allow the election results 
to stand as they were. SGA members would have hurt 
themselves a great deal by disqualifying Klotzbach. 

Students were finally involved. They knew what was going 
on. How often has that happened? If Klotzbach had been 
disqualified from the runoff, how many students would have 
taken the time to vote? I feel many of the students would 
have said, "Why should I bother to take the time to vote? 
They're only going to put whom they want into office 

Another point is that, if Todd Klotzbach was not eligible 
this semester, he would be next semester. If the students really 
wanted him, he would be elected to office next semester. The 
only thing that would have been accomplished would be 
depriving the students of whom they really wanted for office 
this semester. It also would have eliminated a great deal of 
support for the SGA. 

I for one agree with the SGA's decision to uphold the 
election results. After all, the SGA is for the students, right? 
The SGA has supported us and given us what we want— now 
let's give them what they want. Get out and vote Tuesday.-- 
Diana Gratten 

...SGA Was Wrong 

SGA's theme this year has been "SGA - What A Feeling!" 
I suggest a modification. "SGA - What A Joke!" is more 

The Election Board met last week to discuss a challenge to 
Wednesday's results. The Board met and discussed the 
matter, and recommended that the entire election be thrown 
out, and that Tod Klotzbach be disqualified. 

That's where our wonderful SGA Senate comes in. 

"Where's the Beef?" has found a competitor -- "Where's 
the Bull?" There was a lot of it flying around at the Monday 
night meeting 

Despite the fact that Klotzbach was - and still is — not 
qualified, the senate threw out the decision of the Election 
Board. Instead, they approved the results of the election - 
complete with an unqualified candidate and a shotgun 
election board. 

Klotzbach supporters argued that there is no definition of 
full semester (the amount of time a candidate must serve in 
STiA hcfnrp hp runs); therefore, he is eligible. If the period of 
mid-January to April 1 is a full semester, then why are we still 
here? Sorry, but the spring semester isn't over yet. 

All SGA senators take an oath of office that requires them 
to uphold the constitution. The constitution states the 
requirements (although not in the best possible language) for 
running for office. Klotzbach did not meet the requirements, 
but the SGA approval of the elections allows him to be in the 

The senators who voted to approve the election results 
directly violated their oath of office. Instead of trying to cure 
the rampant apathy that permeates this organization, the 
Senate allows a student who has only been in SGA since 
January to run for the highest student office at Northwestern. 

To senators Wyble, Scroggins, Roque, Hall, Sherman, 
Ernst, and Bartholomew, I say "thanks." Thanks for trying 
to uphold the laws by which all NSU students must abide. 

To senators Anthony, Haynes, Maggio, McMillian, 
Shoalmire, Viator, Klotzbach, Martin, Eversull, Nicolle, 
Kelly, and Williams, I say "raspberries to you!" You should 
seriously reconsider your motives for being SGA senators. --

'Are You Going?' 

"Speaking Up" gives 
Current Sauce readers- 
students, faculty, staff--a 
chance to sound off on what 
interests, pleases, annoys, or 
puzzles them. 

Submissions, preferably 
typed and double-spaced, may 
be mailed to the Current 
Sauce, Box 5306, or brought 
to the office, Kyser Hall 225.

By Mernita Branch 

I have often been ap- 
proached by friends who have 
heard of some special campus 
event and asked the question, 

"are you going?" 

To this I usually have one, 
too often repeated answer, 
"no." The next question is 
"why not?" My response: 
"It's too late forme." 

Those of you who have 
wondered why many of the 
campus events, theatre 
productions, or other such 
happenings are so poorly 
attended should look at times 
these events are scheduled. To 
a boarder, it is generally a 
matter of indifference whether 
a crawfish boil or aampus 
movie is to be at 5 or 7 p.m., 
whether the play begins at 7:30 
or 8 p.m., whether most things 
are on the weekend; but, to the 
commuting student such as 
myself, timing is of 
paramount importance. 

Meet Me at the Fair 

Dear Editor: 

This past Summer, when a Medieval-Renaissance Fair at 
Northwestern was first being considered, I took the means 
of writing a letter to the editor in order to ask directly if 
students were interested. From the start, then, the Fair has 
been conceived and planned as a student event~an event 
that is of, by, and for students. 

Now I am again using a letter as a means of talking 
directly with students and of soliciting both support and 

President Orze has supported this from the start and has 
proclaimed the week of April 9-14, just before the 
holidays, as Renaissance Festival Week, and a number of 
activities have been scheduled. 

Among them are two excellent exhibits~"The Art of 
Chivalry" and "Shakespeare, the Globe, and the World"- 
-now on display in the New Fine Arts Center and our 
Drama Department will be giving performances of Twelfth 
Night, one of Shakespeare's best comedies, each evening 

"...What the Fair is all about- students and 

student involvement." 

• 1 

of the time. On Tuesday, there will be a panel discussion 
and free showing of "A Man for All Seasons"--one of the 
best movies I have ever seen-and on Thursday there will be 
an open discussion, led by outside scholars here for The 
South Central Renaissance Conference, on the nature and 
origins of Humanism. 

But for many people, and justly so, the major event may 
well be the Fair itself April 11-14; and this one really 
depends upon students. You will determine its success, its 
value, its fun, even its continuation. A recent column and 
letter in this paper presented very well what the Fair is all 
about-students and student involvement. 

A number of activities and booths and contests are 
scheduled; but there are others that will be cancelled if 
there are no sponsors. This means, of course, that the 
more active participation there is, the more fun there will 

Interested students and organizations should contact 
me. See you at the Fair!

Language Arts 

For most commuters, it is 
either too expensive or too 
time-consuming to drive home 
(or to ride the bus home as I 
do), drive back to school for 
an evening event, and then 
cover the miles necessary 
before reaching home again. 

If I have a great many or 
long homework assignments, 
or if there are things at home 
that need my attention, I am 
often prevented from 
returning to campus. Also, I 
must consider the amount of 
gas needed to make the trip 
and the hour when I finally 
reach home after the event. 

I drive 45 miles to get home. 
Anything that begins after 5 
p.m. will see me home too late 
to get sufficient rest so that I 
will be able to catch the 
university bus in the morning. 

"I drive 45 miles to get 
home. Anything that 
begins after 5 p.m. will 
see me home too late to 
get sufficient rest..." 

"Plan more events for 
early afternoon hours." 

For some, getting tran- 
sportation back to and home 
from the campus at all on 
'weekends or at night is an 
insurmountable problem. 

I suggest and hope that the 
planners and organizers of 
future campus events— rallies, 
theatre productions, events 
sponsored by campus 
organizations, intramurals, 
films— will consider the 
students who must commute 
to school every day and time 
things accordingly. 

Plan more events for the 
earlier afternoon hours. I 
realize that not all things can 
be scheduled earlier in the day, 
but those that can be, I hope, 
will be. A large part of the 
missing participants in these 
events will then be included, 
and the commuting student 
will be made to feel more a 
part of the student body and 
less a stranger on campus. 

As a result, when I am asked 
by others, "are you going?" 
or asking myself "can I go?" I 
and others in similar situations 
may be able to answer with a 
positive, unhesitating "Yes!"

Dear Lisa Williams: 

Not only was your opinion 
in March 20 Current Sauce 
somewhat redundant, it was 
extremely insensitive. 

First, I'd like to say that it is 
human nature to be curious 
and to show concern. 
Comparing a tragic drowning 
scene to a 'mini-festival', 
could only be accomplished by 
a person with twisted values 
Finally, if the planners of 'ho 
hum activities' are not able to 
draw the attendance they need 
perhaps they should leave that 
job to another. I'm sorry that 
your events are not drawing 
people, but perhaps an in- 
dependent article (separate 
from death),would be a better 

way to bitch at us!.

Dear Ms. Williams: 

Could you or someone of 
the staff tell me who paid for 
the crawfish boil last Saturday 
night? Since some were served 
at Iberville Cafeteria for 
dinner, obviously too many 
were bought. If the payment 
for these crawfish came out of 
our Student Association Fund, 
(which I feel certain it did), 
then I would like my $5 worth 
of crawfish to be served to me 
this Friday night since I have 
already paid for them at 
registration. If this is not 
possible please have Nor- 
thwestern deduct $5 from my 
Fall registration. 

Thank you very much.

Alumni Still Determined 

Dear Editor: 

When the wise man said 
"You can't please all of the 
people all of the time", he 
must have been speaking of 
the citizens of Natchitoches, 

Since moving to Nat- 
chitoches 15 years ago to 
attend NSU, I have felt that 
Natchitoches was my home. 
While attending Northwestern 
in 1969, I was part of one of 
'the largest Freshman classes 
,ever to attend this university; 
dormitories were full, classes 
were large, and NSU's 
reputation as one of the best 
universities for education was 
still in tact. 

As time passed, many 
changes have occurred at 
Northwestern and not all of 
them good or beneficial; 
dorms now stand empty, 
classes are no longer large and 
NSU's reputation is no longer 

Although things have 
changed, they are not 
hopeless; Northwestern's 
problems are solvable if the 
people who owe her the most, 
her alumni, her faculty and 
staff, and her hometown 
citizens work together and 
each do their fair share. 

A year ago, two fellow 
businessmen and I decided 
that Northwestern was im- 
portant to us for several 
reasons-all of us had attended 
NSU and we all realized that 
the university is Natchitoches' 
number one industry. After 
some thought we arrived at the 
obvious solution— bring more 
students to NSU and thus 
bring in more revenue for the 
school. The question, of 
course, was how to get 
students here— again the 
answer was obvious— money. 

Our goal was simple— 5 
million dollars in the next 5

years and use that money for 
the sole purpose of recruiting 
capable students to the 
campus. We were pleased to 
find that there were many 
people willing to work toward 
our goal. We contacted all 
faculty and staff members, 
alumni throughout the state, 
and hundreds of citizens in 

particularly disheartening 
when these people draw their 
paycheck every month from 
the same university they refuse 
to support. 

There are no under-handed 
deals, no hidden cards-the 
plan is simple: raise money 
and use that money in the 
form of scholarships to recruit 
students to NSU. 

"...dorms now stand empty, classes are no

gratifying. We were able to 
sell over 800 tickets at $100 per 
ticket to the Extravaganza 
held Saturday night to begin 
our pledge campaign. In- 
dividual pledges are being 
accepted for any amount for, 
the next five years and already 
we have over 200 thousand 
dollars in pledges. 

This is the good news-the 
bad news is that there are so 
many cynical, suspicious 
people who refuse to make any 
commitment at al.l to solving 
Northwestern's problems. It is 

To those who have and will 
help support a worthy in- 
stitution such as Nor- 
thwestern, we say thank you 
for your over-whelming 
support. We will attain our 
goal because we won't give up 
until we do. To those of you 
who have for one reason or 
another, hesitated or refused

reconsider your position, put 
away your petty grievances

'Professor Applauds 
'Pro-faculty' Stand 

Dear Editor: 

Congratulations and thanks 
to the Current Sauce for 
Darlene Winslow's article, 
"Faculty Members Upset Over 
Campaign 'Pressure'" and 
Lisa Williams' editorial, 
"Give Until It Hurts?" As a 
faculty member, I was 
shocked and alarmed when my 
department chairman per- 
sonally requested my pledge 

And I did feel pressure to 
give to ensure that my name 
would not find its way to a 
"list" of non-givers. But 
because I do not believe one 
should be coerced to give to 
any cause, I checked the "I do 
not wish to participate at this 

time" box. 

Even though many of my 
colleagues shared my concern, 
I thought the issue would die 
in the hallways. So, imagine 
my surprise and pleasure when 
I read Ms. Winslow's article 
and found it supported by Ms. 
Williams' editorial. 

Will the Current Sauce's 
efforts change things or negate 
a "list," if there is one? 
Maybe not. But the Sauce's 
pro-faculty stand made me 
feel that I, and the entire 
faculty, have a CHAMPION 
on this campus-and that is a 
rare and good feeling.

Cyclists Forced to Break 
Laws to Survive 


By Debra Waters 

I have recently taken to biking to school 
and, after only a week at it, feel lucky to be 

Checking with fellow bicyclists, I have 
learned that most who take to the streets on 
their bicycles suffer not only the expected 
trials of heat, cold, dust, wind and 
discomfort in various parts of their 
anatomy, but also the abuses of passing 
motorists (ranging from taunts and insults 

"...the abuses of passing 
motorists... and even life-threatening 
instances of being hit by cars." 

hurled through windows to being physically 
grabbed), and even life-threatening instances 
of being hit by cars. 

A few cases from those who've lived to tell 
about it: 

Paul Pickering, while an NSU student, 
was riding down Williams Avenue when a 
driver, turning off Williams onto another 
road, knocked him off his bike. The driver 
stopped, and although Paul was not able to 
get up on his own, decided that he was okay 
and drove off, leaving a passing motorist to 
render aid. 

Dr. Sara Burroughs, English professor, 
sports a two-inch scar on her arm, memento 
of a run-in with a pickup truck that rounded 
a corner in the wrong lane. (This driver had 
the decency to take her to the hospital for 
emergency treatment.) 

Renee Hughes, student, reports having 
been grabbed by a passing motorist while 
waiting for a light to change. 

Leslie Gregory, student, was riding her 
bike through the intersection by Ackel's 
Grocery when a motorist made a right turn 
on red, missing Les by only inches. 

All of these bikers regularly have to 
contend with insults and shouted abuses. 
Interestingly, there appears to be a direct 
correlation between the degree of nastiness 
of the insult and the indignation expressed 
when the bicyclist retorts with appropriate 
hand gestures (not much good to shout at the 
rear wheels of a speeding auto.) 

These offending motorists fall in two 
caugories: that element that has little regard 
for fellow humans (in this category are the 
verbal abusers, the grabbers, the runners- 
over of dogs and other pets for pleasure, and 
the potential person-slaughterers.) 

In the second category are those who are 
simply ignorant of the laws regarding 
bicyclists. It is this second category that I 
address here, in hopes that once these people 
realize that bicyclists have a legal right to be 

on the streets, they will accord them the 
respect they do other motorists. 

The first element mentioned is another 
story, one that won't be addressed here, as 
this type of person is a mystery to me and 
remains forever beyond my understanding, 
for which I am grateful.) 

The law is very simple. Bicyclists on the 
streets and highways of Louisiana are 
subject to and protected by the same laws 
and regulations as motorists. 

They have a legal right to be on the street. 
They should be yielded to if they have the 
right-of-way. They should be passed in a 
safe and sane manner, and the motorist 
should honk first to let the cyclist know he or 
she is passing. 

This, it seems to me, should not be 
something that the average motorist cannot 
comprehend and comply with. That so many 
find it difficult to do, or simply refuse to, is 
indicated by the number of cyclists that are 
forced to break motoring laws in order to 

Riding a bike on the sidewalk is a no-no; 
however, when on a busy street where there 
is no shoulder (such as Front Street between 
College Avenue and downtown), riding on 
the street is literally perilous and the 
sidewalk is the only safe place. 

Cyclists are supposed to stop for red 
lights; however, not only is it easier to just 
slip on through if there is no traffic, it is 
prudent from a safety standpoint, as the 

"And Northwestern could definitely 
benefit from encouraging its students 
to cycle..." 

safest time for a cyclist to get through an 
intersection is when there is no traffic. 

Besides motorist awareness, there is a 
further solution to the problem of safety for 
the bicycle paths and, where that is not 
practical, road signs reminding motorists 
that the strets are for cyclists, as well as 

Perhaps Natchitoches, which is a 
beautiful town that should be a pleasure to 
cycle in, could explore the possibility of 
introducing these measures. 

And Northwestern could definitely benefit 
from encouraging its students to cycle, 
thereby cutting down on the parking crush 
and allowing commuting students who really 
need the parking space priority. Probably 
the students of the Louisiana School would 
appreciate a little respect for all the bicycles 
parked in front of their school, as well.

Pledge Cards Defended 

Dear Ms. Williams: 

This concerns your editorial 
and the article by Ms. Darlene 
Winslow about "Campaign 

I was simply amazed at both 
articles. The information 
furnished by turning in the 
pledge cards could have been 
obtained by the campaign 
committee by deducting the 
pledges from the list of faculty 
and employees in NSU's 
budeet (a public document). 

As I understood this 
request, it was simply a 
method of saving time in 
determining NSU employee 
participation. The par- 
ticipation percentage is to be 
used as a selling point in 
raising funds off-campus. 
After all, we cannot very well 
ask for help if we are not 

willing to help ourselves. 

The very idea of anyone 
pressuring Dr. Sara Burroughs 
is, to say the least, ridiculous. 
Both Dr. Burroughs and Dr. 
Bartholomew, her department 
head, are professional 
academic individuals. Dr. 
Bartholomew would never 
stoop to such tactics. He 
would have more success 
trying to pressure Attila the 
Hun . 

I would further like to point 
out to all students and 
university employees that this 
is the first overall fund drive 
(in so far as I know) in 
university history. Let's all 
support it to the best of our

Alumnus Disturbed 

Dear Editor, 

Over the past several years 
I've had an interest in the 
success of Northwestern State 
University because of my 
friendship with members of 
the faculty and ad- 
ministration, in my role as 
alumnus advisor to the KA 
Chapter, and as alumnus of 

Last fall I was one of the 
many area residents asked to 
be on the Centennial Ex- 
travaganza committee. We 
were willing to donate our 
time and energy to serving on 
the committee; selling tickets 
to the Extravaganza - all to 
help Northwestern raise funds 
for recruiting and scholar- 

We expected and received 
the cooperation of the vast 
majority of the faculty and 
staff to NSU; but to read your 
front page article and the 
comments from a small group 
of faculty members was most 
disturbing. Nowhere did you 
mention that the function 
raised some $65,000 for the 

Your editorial was even 
more disturbing. At a time 
when everyone needs to be 
promoting Northwestern I 
read not a positive word about 
a most successful event. I 
agree that faculty and staff 
salaries are not as high as they 

should be, but these people 
have chosen to be a part of the 
University knowing that 
salaries at state institutions are 
historically low. To sum up 
my thoughts about your 
editorial policy and the 
disgruntled faculty members I 
want to paraphrase Edwin 
Edwards - If you can't get on 
the train, then get off the 

The Centennial Ex- 
travaganza was a success! I am 
certain that we can look 
forward to many more events 
during the Centennial Year 
that will propel Northwestern 
State University into a most 
successful second century.

Do not misunderstand us -

given to Northwestern by the

Winslow's article was about 
faculty unhappiness about 
what was perceived as pressure 
to donate.

was that faculty members, 
who haven't had raises in 
more than a year, should not 
be pressured to sign pledge

Replies to 

Mr. John Ramsey, 

What fraternity are you in? 
Could it be that the two 
competitors seeking SGA 
president, besides Klotzbach, 
were in your same fraternity? 
How can you say: Anthony, 
Haynes, Maggio, McMillian, 
Eversull, Nicole, Kelly, and 
Williams directly violated their 
oath of office. I believe these 
senators elected by the student 
body voted for what the 
student body wanted. 

We all know how long a full 
semester is although this was 
not stipulated in our con- 
stitution. Besides, this one 
semester stipulation is to 
insure that an unqualified 
Person is not elected. The 
majority of the students, and 
senators, believed that Mr. 
Klotzbach was qualified.

Demons Take 2 of 3 
From Centenary Gents 

Northwestern's diamond 
Demons took two of three 
games from Centenary, 
defeating the Gents 3-2 on 
Friday and splitting a 
doubleheader Saturday. 

The Gents committed five 
turnovers in the game Friday 
to aid the Demon -ause in the 
ball game as Centenary 
dropped its record to 6-7 in 
Trans America Athletic 
Conference play. 

Northweste«n struck 
quickly, scoring in the top of 
the first inning. Gil Herndon 
singled down the third base 
line, advanced to third on an 
error on a pickoff attempt by 
Gent pitcher Stacy Burt and 
then scored on a single by 
Scott Huscroft. 

The Gents tied the game in 
the bottom of the second when 
Kevin Warner walked four 
batters to load the bases. 
Warner got out of the inning, 
however, when Centenary's 
Randy Williams stepped out 
of the batter's box with two 
strikes and two outs and was 
called out on the third strike 
with the bases still loaded. 

NSU chalked up two more 
unearned runs in the top of the 
third. Herndon reached first 
on a walk and moved to second 
on a sacrifice bunt by David 
Bailey. Huscroft then drew a 
walk and both runners moved 
up on a wild pitch by Burt. 

When Gent catcher Wayne 
Rathbun tried to throw 
Huscroft out at second, 
second baseman John Kubik 
couldn't hold the throw, 
which rolled into centerfield, 
allowing Herndon to score. 
Huscroft also scored on the 
play as centerfielder Williams 
held the ball and then threw 
the ball to the plate too late to 
catch Huscroft. 

That was the difference in 
the game as Burt shut the 
Demons down for the 
duration of the game. Cen- 
tenary staged a comeback in 
the bottom of the eighth as 
Rathbun reached first on an 
error. Pinch hitter John 
Mohon followed with a walk. 
Billy Harwell then ripped a 
host off the centerfield wall 
that scored Rathbun. The 
Demons shut Centenary down 
at that point to account for the 

final score. With the win the 
Demons moved their record to 
12-30 overall and 6-10 in 

In Saturday's doubleheader, 
Centenary scored two runs in 
the sixth inning to overcome 
Northwestern's lead and take 
a 7-6 win in the second game 
of the doubleheader. 

In the opener, the Demons 
used a five-run seventh inning 
to take the opener 7-2. 

In the second game, the 
Gents found some offense, 
scoring on solo homers by 
Randy Williams and Jim 
Goldman to take a 2-1 lead. 

Two more runs came across 
in the second as Demon relief 
pitcher Mike Antonini ran into 
difficult times. He was spiked 
on the leg on a putout at first 
base, then unloaded a wild 
pitch on a swinging third strike 
and then balked in the run that 
put NSU behind 4-1. 

Back-to-back doubles by 
Scott Huscroft and Greg 
Patterson in the third inning 
cut the difference to 4-2 but 
the Gents got the run back in 
the lower half of the inning on 
a run-scoring single by John 

Centenary, however, could 
find a pitcher to stop a late 
charge by the Demons as NSU 
ran through three pitchers en 
route to two runs in the fifth 
inning, then went in front 6-5 
an inning later when Huscroft 
punched out a two-run homer. 

The Gents came back in the 
sixth inning using a single by 
Troy Washko and a sacrifice 
bunt by Rathbun to finally win 
the game. 

IN the opener, NSU was 
more direct, using a two-run 
homer by David Bailey and a 
solo shot by David Reynolds 
to lead-off the seventh inning. 
It was his first homer in the 45 
games plaved this season. 

Reynold's homer, doubles 
by Wayne Lupo and Bailey, 
and Billy Stevenson's two-run 
single-along with two walks, 
knocked out Gent starter 
Ricky Hardaway. 

NSU was scheduled to take 
on Tulane in New Orleans 
Monday. The Demons are 
now 13-31 overall and 7-11 in 
TAAC play. 

Lady Demon Softballers 
Sweep Lamar, Gr ambling 

Northwestern's Lady 
Demon Softball team swept 
past Lamar here last Tuesday 
afternoon, winning the first 
contest 6-0 and taking the 
nightcap by a 9-4 margin. The 
Lady Demons then took a 
sweep over Grambling State 
Thursday to move their 
overall record to 11-16. 

Sydney Forrester pitched all 
four games for the Lady 
Demons to improve her record 
to 8-10. Forrester allowed just 

three singles in the first game, 
Tuesday, those all coming in 
the last inning. 

Sherri Brooks drove in the 
first run for the Lady Demons 
in the opener in the fifth in- 
ning and Julie Robinson 
added a two-run single. 
Broocks, Cindy Berry and 
Debbie Darbonne all had RBI 
singles in the sixth. 

In the second contest 
' Brooks had a two-run homer 
and a triple while Wendv 

Zucconi had three hits and 
drove in four runs. Darbonne 
and Renee Richard both added 
two hits.

1-49 Construction to 
Bypass NSU Woods 

By Craig Scott 

The Well Woods, a tract of 
land about a mile west of 
campus owned by NSU as a 
natural history reserve, will 
apparently be spared by 
further construction of 1-49. 

According to Dr. Tom 
Burns, head of the Depart- 
ment of Biology and 
Microbiology, the State 
Department of Transportation 
and Representative Jimmy 
Long have "given their word" 
that the woods, including the 
beech ravine which runs 
almost parallel to Highway 6, 
will not be destroyed. 

Original plans in 1981 for 
the new highway called for the 
dissection of the 84.17 acre 
tract, which is essential to 
students and Natchitoches 
citizens who study life 

Jack R. Reid, director of 
preconstruction for the 
project, asked then to meet 
with Dr. Ray Baumga"rdner, 

then head of the Department 
of Biology, Rep. Long and 
Senator Don Kelly, to discuss 
the University's reaction to 
this proposal. 

Since that time many 
departments and faculty 
members have voiced their 
strong feelings and worked 
hard to preserve the Well 
Woods as an irreplaceable 
example of distinct habitats 
and a natural teaching and 
research facility. 

Through the efforts of 
many concerned people as well 
as the cooperation of the 
Department of Transporation, 
present plans do not call for 
dissection of the woods, but 
rather for widening Highway 6 
by approximately 75 feet on 
the Well Woods side. This 
would not endanger the beech 
ravine or any of the 
ecosystems of the woods. 

Although construction 
through the woods would have

Photography Majors 
Shutter With Worry 

By Darlene Winslow 

Many photography majors 
have expressed concern about 
not being able to take the 
courses they need to complete 
the degree requirements. 

Although many of the 
courses are not being offered, 
there is hope that much of the 
needed equipment will be 
available by the time freshmen 
reach the upper course levels. 

"We will have to nickel and 
dime it as we go along. It may 
take time but eventually the 
program will take off," said 
Bill Bryant, chairman of the 
Department of Art. 

The program has been slow 
getting started because of lack 
of money to purchase 
equipment, such as cameras, 
color enlargers, and lights. 

For a photography degree a 
student must take 35 hours in 
photography courses; at 
present Northwestern offers 
only 25. Bryant hopes to offer 
more courses in the fall. He 
said "every department on 
campus needs money." 

At present there are 14 
photography majors. Seven 
are freshmen, and five have 
taken between one and three 
photography courses. The 
remaining two photography 
students are leaving Nor- 
thwestern to go to a 
professional photography 
institute in Chicago. They will 
transfer credits back to 
Northwestern to graduate. 

The catalog lists twelve 
photography courses, of 
which three were taught last 
fall; four may be offered next 

Dean Ed Graham said, "We 
make a commitment to 
students to get them through a 
program and we will do what 
is necessary to get them out." 

Northwestern has the 
distinction of being the only 
university in Louisiana to 
offer a professional 
photography degree. 

Nolan Bailey, assistant 
professor of photography, 
said, "The easiest way to be a 
winner is to be the only

helping to preserve the Well 

The Well Woods was 
originally willed to the school 
to conserve the area as a 
teaching facility. It is so 
named because at one time all

In May 1961, the Depart- 
ments of Agriculture and 
Biological Sciences proposed 
to President John S. Kyser 
that the Well Woods "be 
officially designated as a 
natural history preserve" in 
order to protect its flora and 
fauna. This was the first step 

in a move to protect the 

The Nature Conservancy, a 
non-profit organization 
dedicated to preserving 
samples of American land- 
scape, visited the woods in 
February 1964. George L. 
Collins, president, wrote later 
the area is an "indispensable 
natural open space in which to 
pursue the life sciences." 

Collins and Doris Leonard 
of the board of governors 
urged that the college preserve 
the woods from hostile forces, 
"especially human ones." 

Finally, on August 14, 1964, 
the Louisiana State Board of 
Education set aside this tract 
of land as a natural history

SGI to Sell Confiscated 
Drugs to Raise Money 

Student Government 
Imitators president, Pret-

yesterday that because of a 
$25,000 debt, the SGI at 
NSZoo would be forced to sell 
drugs, confiscated recently in 
a dorm bust, at a 40 percent 
markup, to any student 
requesting them. 

Figurehead said that an 
extra line would be set up in 
the Student Onion and at 
Slobberville cafeteria, and also 
that Professional Food 
Mismanagement (PFM) would 
cater the drugs to all card 
carrying Demons. 

A spokesperson for the SGI, 
Mary Wanna, said that the 
drugs would go on sale 
starting Monday, and that 
Tuesday, a special two-for-one 
offer on Black Mollies and 
Darvons would be in effect. 

She also announced that 
prices would be slashed in half 
during finals week for all 
speed, and that there would be 
a special buy-one-get-one free 

deal for hash immediately 
after the last final on Friday.

the SGI would have an essay 
contest with the winner 
receiving the hallucinogen of 
their choice. In 500 words or 
less, students should write on

Study Links 

After 25 years of research, 
testing, studying, and 45 
scientists later, it has been 
conclusively proven that 
extensive studying can cause 
cancer of the brain. 

There was a high amount of 
brain cancer reported among 
exceptionally good students, 
while students who were 
failing classes, partying, and 
refusing to study had very low 
reports of brain cancer. 

When the Surgeon General 
was asked what he intended to 
do about the results, he 
replied," I don't know what 
we are going to do about this 
problem, but I can assure you 
that I am not going to study it 
very long." 

Recent tests done at the 
University of Southern 
California have proven that 
extensive studying is hazar- 
dous to your health and can be 
the cause of the high increase 
of cancer in good students. 

USC scientists have been 
testing this theory for more 
than 20 years. However, they 
were having extreme problems 
with keeping people informed 
on the research.

Vice president West proudly 
announced this week that NSU 
has achieved a new high in 
administrator/student ratio. 

"We now have one ad- 
ministration or staff personnel 
for every three students," 
West beamed. "This is the 
best ratio in the state. 

"In the summer, of course, 
this ratio is even more 
favorable, as we retain all 
administrative and support 
staff, while the student 
population is down 50 percent. 
This means that for every one

Asked about the

replied. "Well, in order to 
retain this admirable ad- 
ministrator/student ratio, we 
are reducing faculty by at- 
trition, and, we have to cut the 
faculty in the summer. That, 
of course, is not nearly as 
detrimental to the student as 
inadequate administration 
would be.

Tragedy Strikes NSZoo Mascot Poisoned

Lucifer Armageddon was_ 
assassinated recently when a 
dozen roses, given to him by 
an unidentified Demon bat 
girl, turned out to be 
poisonous fakes. 

Campus Insecurity believe it 
to be a lover's quarrel, but 
close friends of the mascot 
believe it to be a covert at- 
tempt to rid NSZoo of the 
Demon as a mascot. 

Armageddon was chastising 
the umpire at a recent NSZoo 
baseball game when the bat 
girl brought him a dozen roses 
and kissed him on the cheek. 

Armageddon took the roses 
and pranced around on top of 
the opposing teams dugout for 
about five minutes before he 
collapsed and fell off back- 

All of this went unnoticed, 
because, as usual, no one was 
watching the mascot anyway. 
He was found after the game 
by one of the groundskeepers 
as he was picking up empt; 

Coke and popcorn cups.

Plans were unveiled 
Monday for the new 12-story 
administration wing to grace 
Normal Hill. 

The high-rise tower, con- 
structed in conjunction with 
the preservation of the histroic 
Caldwell Hall ruins, will house

during the meeting at which 
models and artists' con- 
ceptions were presented, said 
that the preservation of the 
remains had long been his 
dream. The building was 
destroyed by fire in the Fall of 

"I saw the walls crumble 
beneath the billowing flames 
that cold October night and 
fell in love with the concept of 
saving the beauty of charred 
brick, cracked plaster, and 

twisted iron." 

The 12-floors, of which only 
six will actually be used, is 
visualized by Dough and his 
colleagues as a "classic Greco- 
Roman tower" that will blend 
well with the "Parthenon-like 
attributes of the ruins and the 
three Bullard Hall columns," 
and give the campus a focal 

The additional six floors are 
to remain empty and main- 
tenance-free for the first five 
years of the building's use, at 
which time they will be fit for 
use as low-rent married 
student housing. 

"There should be no real 
problems with the raising of 
the new structure," said 
Dough, "but, I am concerned 
with the preservation of the

off, and so many have been 
lost as Centennial souvenirs 
already. It is possible that we 
might have to go to other 
sources in order to replace and 
reconstruct missing parts of

much as we'd hate to do this 
type of work, we're already 
hunting a good material 

Roy Hall is currently being 
considered for use as a cold 
storage unit for some 1 50 state 
issued pianos and various 
uncrated desks and 
typewriters. There have been 
problems in the structures, 
passing of state fire codes. 
However, measures are being 
taken to correct these 
problems and insurance will 
probably be raised. 

NSU president, Joe Orgy, 
and Board of Trustees 
member, Bobby Dean 
Bigbucks, were elated at the 

plans and the growth of the 
school's plant. 

President Orgy stated that it 
was his feeling that Nor- 
thwestern should grow as 
Natchitoches grows. 

"The tower can only serve 
to strengthen the bond bet- 
ween the town and the 
university. Perhaps we can 
come to see our own rising 
skyline as a symbol of 
brotherhood and partnership 
with Natchitoches, as the town 
is reaching for the stars, also." 

Dr. Bigbucks had a couple 
of suggestions for the tower's 

"What about the A.L. 
Williams Tower of Power, or 
maybe the Dr. Bobby Dean

Jones was no stranger to 
controversy during his term 
here at NSZoo. After being

Trouble Brewing? 

Recently state representative John J. Hainkel 
Jr., D-New Orleans, suggested that closing one or 
more of the state's institutions of higher learning be 
explored as a means of balancing budgets. 

The institution mentioned by Hainkel as the 
ideal choice to close is one of the oldest public 
institutions in Louisiana-certainly the oldest in 
North Louisiana--our own NSU. 

Because Northwestern trails most of the state's 
universities in attendance and is not located in one 
of the larger population centers, closing Nor- 
thwestern seems to Hainkel a logical decision. 

James H. Gillis, in an April 10 editorial in a New 
Orleans newspaper, the Times-Picayune/States- 
Item, recommended moving "the entire university 
to Shreveport, leaving a junior college at the 
present Natchitoches site." 

Gillis' idea is to consolidate NSU with LSU 
Shreveport and change the name to the University 
of Northwestern Louisiana. (We can only imagine 
the confusion this would cause NFL sportscasters.) 

Said Gillis, "No community that already has a 
university wants to lose it... But it would be far 
better to preserve a respected instituiton in a new 
locale than to face the time in the not too distant 
future when it might die on the vine from having 
prospective students siphoned off into other 
universities in larger population centers." 

We understand that money-saving programs are 
in serious need, especially where higher education is 

We are also aware that the LSU system has had 
its eyes on a North Louisiana school, for quite 
some time, ready to pounce at the first sign of 

Could this be a beginning? 

....A New Beginning 

It's funny how time can pass 
so quickly. You hear echoes of 
that theme everyday, but it's 

I have certainly learned a lot 
this past year -- about myself, 
about this paper, and about 
Northwestern, not to mention 
the people around me. 

For one thing, I've seen how 
quickly people become your 
"friends" and how quickly 
they can forget they know 

I've seen how quick we can 
be to judge, especially if we 
haven't one iota of a clue. 

I've seen how scared some 
people are around here to talk 
and to stand up for what they 

believe is right. But that 
happens everywhere. 

When I started, I had a lot of 
ideas and dreams for 
changing the world. I've 
learned to siphon the realities 
from the dreams and still not 
feel disillusioned. 

I am proud of the progress 
we have made this year. 
Without the help of those 
dedicated few ... oh well you 
know the rest of the story. 

Thank you to the real 
friends who were always there. 

I haven't lost my dreams. I 
just see now what is really 
important. I hope others will,

What would you say if you 
gave me $11 and I gave you 3 
times that much back? Too 
good to be true? Not really 
since it happens every semester 
for the students who take 
advantage of the program- 
ming done by the Student 
Activities Board. Let's look at 
the facts. 

First, every full-time student 
pays a $10 Student Union 
Programming fee and a $1 
Student Drama Fee which goes 
to the SAB each semester. 
With this grand total of $11 
per full-time student, the 
Activities Board must supply a 
semester of activities. This 
semester, the SAB has sup- 
plied students with 15 ac- 
tivities, 7 of which took place 
at night, 8 in the afternoon; 12 
movies, which have shown for 
2 consecutive nights each 
week; and 7 videos, which 
have shown at different times 
each day for a week. This 
totals to 34 activities in ap- 
proximately 13 weeks, 
averaging to almost 3 activities 
per week. 

Even if you attended half of 
the movies and videos alone, 
you would be ahead of the $1 1 
you paid at the beginning of 
the semester. Now what other 
campus organization gives you 
back three times what you put 
into it, plus the opportunity to 
have a voice in choosing how 
your money is spent? 

Looking back over this past 
year, I feel that the Student 
Activities Board has changed 
and grown a great deal. The 
members have had to cope 
with inadequate budgets, lack 
of committee members, and 
overall apathy of the NSU 
students, but they have still

Speaking Up 

Letters, I Get Lots . . . 

By Sara Burroughs 

A full mailbox warms the heart, brightens the eye, and 
lifts the spirits. It means someone wants my 
response... my opinion... my letters... my dollars. Mostly 
my dollars. 

The theme of a recent week's worth of mail was what I 
long suspected: there are more people out there asking for 
money than sending it. 

Not just people, either. First envelope I open has a 
photo of a darling seal pup; it is inscribed "Kiss this baby 
goodbye." Seems the pup has only 12 days to live if I don't 
send $25 to Greenpeace. Scribble. 

Then there are children-is it really only adorable little 
white girls who get polio or leukemia? Or does disease 
make them photogenic? Their long brown curls reach all 
the way to their-crutches. 

OK, if my check can keep one brown curl out of the 
hospital. . .scribble scribble. 

The politicians I find more resistible. 

Even Gary Hart's gorgeous cheekbones do not elicit 
from me the (check here) $25, $35, $50, $100, $250, $other 
that he wants. Not even a cute name like Americans With

and for moral vision. 

Not yet, Gary. But you are certainly more appealing 
than the faceless Democratic National Committee, which 

"You have been individually selected from among the 
qualified voters in your state to participate in an important 
national project unlike any other in the history of 
American elections." 

Who, me? 

Yep. The committee wants me to fill out the official 
1984 presidential strategy ballot, which the DNC will 
carefully consider as it plans for the fall election. Also on 
the ballot are boxes to check-am I giving $15, $20, $50, 
$100, other? 


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee 
also weighs in with a poll. It wants to know which 
presidential candidate gets my nod, so the congressmen 
going to the convention can adjust their voting. And will I 
check one of these boxes...? And will I contribute $5 to 
pay for the release of the results of the poll to the press? 


One mailing looks more like a letter, but it is from the 
class agent, Centenary College '61. After the an- 
nouncement of alumni weekend and before the request for 
the address of Ralph Mason is a reminder to send a check 
to the Great Teacher/Scholar Fund. At least there aren't 
any boxes. 

Two organizations invite me to join and send money. 
The American Civil Liberties Union threatens the world of 
"1984," and the National Organization for Women 
threatens me with the world of Orrin Hatch. Pretty scary. 

Notices from magazines are less personal. Texas Ob- 
server sends a sixth request to renew my subscription, and 
someone wants me to believe that a real person wrote "I 
didn't want to send this letter" on the cancellation notice** 
from Time. 

Merrill Lynch thinks I am in the market for a Market 
Newsletter-ha-and the publishers of Inc. think I am a 
growing company(no), or that I want a growing company 
(yes), and consequently need their magazine (no). 

And if I don't subscribe to anything, how about buying? 

Somehow I've gotten on the mailing list of Twentieth 
Century Plastics, which announces 23 new products, and 
of Prentice-Hall, which invites me to look at its line of 
computer books. The former, bless its corporate heart, 
includes a "free gift" (unlike gifts that cost you), a holder 
tor floppy disks. 

A new drugstore in town invites my business with a book 
of coupons. Two mail order firms specializing in bicycles 
send dream books-frames weighing three pounds, water 
bottles costing more than my first bike. 

Newsletters come: one from Centenary, one from 
Uimmon Cause. And magazines: Texas Monthly, Forbes, 
'he newsletters invite donations; the magazines want 
buyers for their advertisers. 

And there are a few real letters, from friends, family, 
and Jerry Huckaby, who assures me that he voted for the 
fcRA. (He'd better, if he wants my campaign donation 
next time.) 

And if my mail so far hasn't completely drained my 
wallet, the president of Citibank of South Dakota invites 
me to apply for a Mastercard so I can spend more easily 

Having in a moment of weakness eight years ago sent $5 
to Morris Udall, I understand how the Democrats got my 
name. And the others are also explicable, except for one

"I'm so excited about it and 
I'm looking forward to giving 
it a try," said Taylor, who is 
currently in El Paso, TX

"I think it's a good op- 
portunity for Tracy to con- 
tinue her career and I'm ex- 
cited for her," said Lady 
Demon Coach Pat Pierson. 
"Her being drafted speaks 

well for her accomplishments 
during her career and it's 
something the younger players 
in our -program can look 
forward to down the road."

team for the second time and 
during the season was named

Posting a 1-2 record, in- 
cluding a 6-3 win over 
nationally ranked Tulane 
University, the Northwestern 
baseball team placed third in 
the Northeast Louisiana 
Easter Tournament. 

The Demons and Tulane 
both ended the tournament 
with 1-2 records, with Nor- 
thwestern capturing third 
place by virtue of the win over 
the 20th ranked Green Wave. 
New Orleans and host Nor- 
theast Louisiana both were 2- 
1, with the Privateers winning 
the tournament with a 14-3 

win over the Indians. 

Along with placing third, 
the Demons had two players 
on the all-tournament team, 
including senior Jay Lavespere 
and sophomore David Bailey.

loss to New Orleans and then 
collected three hits in the win 
over Tulane. Bailey was four 
for nine in the three games, 
including a double against

out. Following another infield 
out, Lavespere singled and 
Billy Stevenson homered. On 

the very next pitch Patterson 
added a sole home run.

Michael Jackson to Play Feste in Twelfth Night 

Michael Jackson will play' the NSZoo Playhouse's April 
the role of Feste the Clown in'9-13 production of "Twelfth 

Night" by William 

Also engaged are the well- 
known British actors Sir 
Laurence Olivier and Michael 
Caine to play Sir Andrew 
Aguecheek and Sir Toby 

Dr. William Hunt has 
adapted Michael Jackson's 
"Thriller" for the songs Feste 
sings in the play. 

Asked how the Zoo would 
pay the fees demanded by 
these entertainers, Dr. E. Rah 
Blah, director of the 
production, said, "We just 
went to Mr. E.T. Trite, and he 
said, 'Hang the expense!' So, 
we did-on him." 

Dr. Orgy learned of the 
project and took to his bed, 
cancelling his golf game. Vice 
president asked, "Who?" 

However, there should be 
no real trouble, according to 
Mr. Anselmi. He said, "These 
young men have shown real 
talent and they should receive 
scholarships." Consequently, 
Dr. Blah enrolled Jackson, 
Olivier and Caine in Theatre 
100, theatre practicum, thus 
making them eligible to receive 

full scholarships tor the one- 
hour credit course. 

Susie Crayola, poster and 
program designer for the 
production, could not be 
reached for comment. She was 
in the library doing research 
on the famous Elizabethan, 
William Shakesphere, in- 
ventor of the Globe Theatre. 

Captain Kangaroo, director 
of the Zoo Playhouse and the 
A. A. Fredericks Fine Arts 
Center, concurred with the 
project after he was assured 
that the three entertainers 
would not hurt the scenery. 

Dr. Blah admonished the 
Louisiana School students 
who are working on the play 
not to make fun of the three 
men when they made 
mistakes. "After all," he said, 
"They are coming into the 
show late, and they need extra 
time to learn their lines." The 
NSZoo students in the play 
assured Dr. Blah that once 
they put their minds to it they 
fully understood the problems 
of learning lines. 

Everyone is really looking 
forward to the experience, 
especially the last night of 

Kudzu Poses Threat 
to Sludge Bar 

Alumni Fund Purchases 
New Rug for President Orgy 

Kudzu vines, first brought 
to this campus last week, may 
do harm to the University's 
landmarks, according to NSU 
professor of Botany, Dr. 
Sherlock Hemlock. 

Especially of concern to Dr. 
Hemlock and his colleagues is 
the threat posed to the 
Chaplin's Lake area, more 
specifically the scenic sludge 
bar, located directly behind 
the lovely landmark seed mills. 

"The kudzu garbage would 
cover Mount Kilimanjaro if 
you gave it half a chance. 
Whose bright idea was this, 
anyway? Sure, an Ivy League 
lake will look great! Does this 
mean we can wear plaid shorts 

Also cncerned about the 
weed's rampant growth was 
Jean Splice, professor of 
genetic engineering. Splice 
said that her students had been 
carefully cultivating the sludge 
bar, to its now practically 
indestructible state, for years. 

"Well, Sherlock and I were 
talking at lunch the other day 
about this matter. And I think 
it's totally unbelievable that 
the kudzu should be allowed 
to take over this campus. I 
don't think it's at all necessary 
or really wanted. 

"After all, my students 
would have been happy to help 
cultivate a more native and 
less detrimental greenery. 
Why, just take a look at that 
great grass we started on the 

Splice ended her comments 
by expressing her concern for 
campus recreation sites, 
"What about the complex 
pool, or the golf course?" 

President Orgy told the 
press of his great concern over 
the possible threat that is 
posed by the spread of kudzu 
vines throughout the campus. 

Orgy, who gave the Orange 
Clokes, the campus 
organization who iriititated the 
planting project, permission to 
do so, said he was unaware 
until recently of the harm it 
could cause. 

"Nobody told me it would 
take over everything! Even the 
golf course, maybe - we've got 
to stop it before it's too late. I 
don't care how; burn it out, 
pull it up, call out the National 
Guard, or something - dumb 
southern broads." 

The president cut the 
meeting short, as he had to 
check out the possible problem 
at the golf course. 

The NSU Alumni Fund, at a 
thematic banquet Friday 
night, presented President and 
Mrs. Orgy with a new rug in 
honor of the president's 
receiving his pilot's license this 

The evening's theme, "A 
Magic Carpet Ride," was 
carried out in the decorations 
as well as the food. Both of 
these were executed under the 
direction of Mrs. Mae West, 
wife of the executive vice- 
president of NSU and a 
member of the Alumni Fund. 

The rug, an Oriental antique 
pattern, was purchased with 
monies gathered over the past 
year from the university's 

'We had contributions 
from alumni all over the 
country. Participation has 
been great. We even had a 
1909 graduate contribute. 
Why, we thought she was 
dead," said Rug Fund 
Chairman, Billy Bob Joe Tom 
Woodpeck III, a 1983 
graduate now continuing his 
studies as a graduate student 
in NSU's Student Personnel 
Services program. 

The rug, according to Mrs. 
Orgy, who accepted the gift, 
will be placed in the new 
Caldwell Hall Annex office of 
ythe president. 

President Orgy was 
unavailable for comment, as 
he was playing golf.

dered her unconscious. 

In the third match, Akbar 
and Maurice exchanged blows 
for 20 minutes before Maurice 
tagged Toegrabber. 

Toegrabber immediately

Akbar kicked out and 
countered with a belly flop, 
and then tagged Loveless. 

Loveless jumped into the

and then tagged Maurice who 
body slammed Loveless and 
pounced on her for the win.
